The Ottawa Senators and the Seattle Kraken meet in NHL action from Climate Pledge Arena on Monday night.

The Ottawa Senators will look to bounce back from a 5-4 OT loss to Toronto in their last game. Brady Tkachuk leads the Sens in scoring with 59 points including 27 goals and 32 assists while Drake Batherson has 40 points with 25 assists and Josh Norris has 51 points with a team-high 33 goals on the year. Tim Stutzle also has 52 points with 20 goals and 32 assists. Anton Forsberg is 19-16-4 with a 2.78 GAA and a .917 save percentage this season for Ottawa in goal.

The Seattle Kraken will look to build on a 4-3 shootout win over New Jersey last time out. Yanni Gourde leads the Kraken in scoring with 43 points including 17 goals and a team-high 26 assists and Jared McCann has 43 points with a team-high 25 goals while Jordan Eberle has 40 points of his own split between 18 goals and 22 assists. Philipp Grubauer’s seen the majority of Seattle’s action in goal going 17-29-5 with a 3.11 GAA and an .891 save percentage this season.

Ottawa is 50-126 in their last 176 road games and 4-12 in their last 16 games against the Pacific division while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a losing record. Seattle is 16-36 in their last 52 games overall and 7-18 in their last 25 home games while the under is 4-0-2 in their last 6 games following a win.

I’m not looking to back either of these teams and there are far better places to have your money on Monday night. With that said, between two teams with nothing but pride and contractual obligations to play for at this point, I feel the better option here is to go with the value in the plus money with the team that’s also had an easier time winning games as of late. I’ll side with Ottawa in this one.
