Pittsburgh Penguins vs Ottawa Senators prediction

The Pittsburgh Penguins have had their issues at times this season, but they appear to have figured some things out lately and the offense has show flashes. The Ottawa Senators just can’t get out of their own way, and they’re not a team I’m eager to back with 6 straight loses. The Senators have won 3 of the last 4 meetings against the Penguins, but I still can’t pull the trigger given their current form. Give me the Penguins on the road.
