In a game from NHL, we will see Ottawa Senators at New Jersey Devils.
Both Ottawa and New Jersey have bad seasons so far. The Senators are 15-20 and they are just coming off an OT win over Nashville. This was just their third victory in their last 8 outings and things aren’t looking very well for the team. The Senators are also 4-12 on the road this year and this doesn’t give them confidence ahead of their visit to New Jersey. Offensively, they are scoring enough with 3.31 goals per game while the problems come on defense as they are the worst in the league, allowing 3.86 per game.
The New Jersey Devils will play on no rest in this one as they are coming off a loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday. They have won just 3 out of their last 15 games and won just 1 of their last 5 home games. The Devils are scoring 3 goals per game and they are 4th in most goals allowed with 3.63.
The last 4 games between the two sides have gone absolutely crazy, combining for 35 goals which makes it 8.8 per game. Given the fact that both teams are very bad defensively, I expect another shootout.
