Senators vs. Maple Leafs Prediction

I’m on the over here. I just don’t think I can trust either one of these goaltending groups right now, and both have some offensive potential when going head-to-head. These teams also don’t like each other but they enjoy hurting each other on the scoreboard just as much as they do on the ice. Give me the over in what should be a high-scoring game.
