The Ottawa Senators and the Tampa Bay Lightning meet in NHL action from the Amalie Arena on Tuesday night.

The Ottawa Senators will look to rebound from back-to-back losses after a 5-3 loss to Florida in their last game. Brady Tkachuk leads the Sens with 11 points split between a team-high 6 goals and 5 assists while Drake Batherson also has 11 points with 3 goals and a team-high 8 assists as well this season. Alex DeBrincat has 8 points with 6 assists while Shane Pinto and Tyler Motte each have 7 points with Pinto logging 6 goals while Motte has a pair of goals with 5 helpers as well. Anton Forsberg’s gone 3-4 with a 3.04 GAA and a .913 save percentage in goal for Ottawa so far this season.

The Tampa Bay Lightning will try to build on back-to-back wins after a 4-3 win over San Jose in their last matchup. Nikita Kucherov leads the Lightning with 12 points including a team-high 9 assists while Steven Stamkos has 9 points with a team-high 7 goals on the year. Victor Hedman and Brayden Point each have 8 points with a combined 11 assists as well for the Bolts so far this season. Andrei Vasilevskiy is 3-3 with a 2.87 GAA and a .910 save percentage while Brian Elliott is 2-1 with a 3.35 GAA and a .900 save percentage so far between the pipes for Tampa Bay.

Ottawa is 53-130 in their last 183 road games and 19-42 in their last 61 Tuesday games while the under is 10-4-1 in their last 15 games against a team with a winning record. Tampa Bay is 2-6 in their last 8 games following a win and 36-15 in their last 51 home games while the over is 3-0-1 in their last 4 games following a win.

I get the case to be made on either side here, but I’m looking at the over in this one. These are two teams that can get up and down the ice and while they’ve had a slow start, this Tampa team is still the defending Eastern Conference champs and have won two cups in the last three years. On the other side, the Senators have been an upstart in spots this season and haven’t been afraid to go out and play with the big boys. I think this one’s marked for 7 or 8 goals at the very least, so give me the over here.
