The Senators are 19-9 in their last 28 vs. Western Conference and 3-13 in their last 16 road games. The Oilers are 9-4 in their last 13 games playing on 2 days rest and 0-4 in their last 4 home games. The Senators are 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Edmonton.
The Senators struggle on the road, as they've won just three of their last 16 games outside of Ottawa. No, thanks. And while the Oilers aren't much better, this pick has to be a fade from the Senators.
