The Line: New Jersey Devils -120 / Ottawa Senators +109 --- Over/Under: 5
The Ottawa Senators and New Jersey Devils meet Tuesday night at the Prudential Center.
The Ottawa Senators are trying to tread water in the Atlantic by splitting their last eight games. The Senators are averaging 2.8 goals per game and have scored 14 goals in their last three games. The Ottawa Senators have scored two power play goals in their last six games and have won six of their last eight games when scoring at least three goals overall. Mike Hoffman leads Ottawa with 17 goals, Bobby Ryan has 23 assists and Clarke MacArthur has 108 shots on goal. Defensively, the Senators are allowing 2.8 goals per game and haven’t given up a power play goal in four of their last six games. Craig Anderson has allowed 73 goals on 999 shots faced and Robin Lehner has given up 56 goals on 576 shots.
The New Jersey Devils are playing some decent hockey with wins in four of their last six games. The Devils are averaging 2.2 goals per game and have scored six goals in their last three games. The New Jersey Devils have scored one power play goal in their last three games and have won seven straight games when scoring at least three goals. Mike Cammalleri leads the Devils with 16 goals, Adam Henrique has 17 assists and Jaromir Jagr has 103 shots on goal. Defensively, the Devils are allowing 2.6 goals per game and haven’t allowed a power play goal in five of their last seven games. Keith Kinkaid has allowed 18 goals on 222 shots faced and Cory Schneider has given up 97 goals on 1,242 shots.
The Senators are 6-15 in their last 21 vs. Eastern Conference and 1-4 in their last 5 road games. The Devils are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. a team with a losing record and 4-10 in their last 14 games playing on 2 days rest. The Senators are 4-9 in the last 13 meetings in New Jersey and 6-2 in the last 8 meetings overall.
I like the New Jersey Devils to remain hot, as they've done an OK job of beating up on subpar comp recently. The Senators have been a complete mess away from home.
