I love the Senators here. The Blackhawks have provided value in spots, but they’ve gotten back to old habits as of late as they’re having a hard time winning hockey games. On the other side, the Senators are playing some of their best hockey of the entire season and I just don’t feel like stepping in front of them right now with Chicago on the other side. Give me the Senators in this one.
