Connor Hellebuyck has given up 80 goals on 1,014 shots faced and Laurent Brossoit has given up 22 goals on 257 shots.
The Ottawa Senators need a win after losing six of their last seven games. The Ottawa Senators are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 14.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Drake Batherson leads Ottawa with 13 goals, Thomas Chabot has 20 assists and Brady Tkachuk has 169 shots on goal.

The Jets are 6-1 in their last 7 road games and 7-3 in their last 10 overall. The Senators are 0-4 in their last 4 home games and 22-53 in their last 75 overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Jets last 5 overall. The under is 8-3 in Senators last 11 overall. The Jets are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Ottawa and 7-1 in the last 8 meetings. The favorite is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.
The Winnipeg Jets have not only comfortably been the better team this season, but they've won five of the six meetings against the Senators this season. The Jets have been money in the favorite role all season long and they've actually won seven of the last eight meetings against the Senators overall. The Ottawa Senators continue to pile up the losses and playing at home hasn't made much of a difference. I can only back the Jets in this spot, and I'll take the PL for max betting value.
