The Line: Ottawa Senators -105 / Florida Panthers -105 --- Over/Under: 5.5 See the Latest Odds
The Panthers look to continue their impressive winning streak as they take to the road to battle the Senators in Ottawa on Thursday night.
The Florida Panthers have won 10 straight hockey games and will look to make it 11 with a win in the Canadian capital on Thursday in a show down between two Atlantic division rivals looking to cement their place in the Eastern Conference. The Cats have been ridiculous of late and have taken over top spot in the division, leading the Canadiens by three points coming into tonight’s game and they done so with a ton of conviction as well as they are blowing teams out of the water and some games aren’t even close. Florida took down the Sens in Sunrise last week and the home side earned a shutout bur they know it’ll be very tough to replicate that on the road with a revenge factor.

The Senators have had a tough go over the last few weeks as their offense has gone dry but they could ne on the ascent after their last outing which was one of their best of the season in what was a 3-2 overtime win against the St. Louis Blues. Ottawa still has some work to do but they do look good in this spot against a good Panthers team that is playing a bit over their heads right now and we get the benefit of their 10 game winning streak in this spot as the line is at even money. Ottawa is the more desperate of the two sides, are playing at home, and have the law of averages here as it is incredibly tough to win 11 games in a row in the NHL. It stops tonight. Take the Sens.
