Monday NHL action features the New York Rangers hosting the Ottawa Senators.
The Ottawa Senators have been struggling defensively which we saw in a 7-4 defeat at Dallas Friday for loss number three in a row. The Senators saw goals off the sticks of Ryan Dzingel, Brady Tkachuk, Maxime Lajoie and Zack Smith. Thomas Chabot had two helpers and Bobby Ryan logged three helpers for Ottawa who saw Craig Anderson give up five goals on 53 shots.
Miro Hiskanen led the Dallas offense with a pair of goals while Jamie Benn, Taylor Fedun, Blake Comeau and Gavin Bayreuther also found the scoring column. Devin Shore, Alexander Radulov and Mattias Janmark all posted two helpers and Anton Khudobin stopped 29 shots to pick up the win for the Stars.
The New York Rangers have followed a three game winning streak with consecutive defeats following a 5-3 loss to visiting Washington on Saturday. New York saw scoring from Jimmy Vesey, Brady Skjel and Ryan Strome. Kevin Hayes gave the Rangers two assists and Alexander Georgiev allowed four goals on 27 shots to get the loss.
The balanced Capitals offense received scoring from Nic Dowd, Jakub Vrana, Alex Ovechkin, Brett Connolly and Tom Wilson. John Carlson added three helpers for Washington who saw Phoenix Copley pick up the win with 27 saves.
Over is 4-0 in Senators last 4 when their opponent allows 5 goals or more in their previous game and over is 4-0 in Senators last 4 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600 and over is 10-1 in Senators last 11 road games. Over is 8-1 in Rangers last 9 in the fourth game of a 4-in-6 days situation and Rangers are 7-1 in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest and Rangers are 7-1 in their last 8 home games. Home team is 10-1 in the last 11 meetings and Senators are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings and Senators are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in New York.
The way the Senators have both scored and given up goals makes me think over…
