Coming off a 4-2 win over Boston, the Ottawa Senators head to Dallas to take on the Stars.
Dallas, with wins in each of the last two games, will look to make it three in a row against a tough Senators squad.
Sitting 2nd in the Pacific Division, the Ottawa Senators are heading to the playoff barring an unforeseen meltdown. A lot of credit can be given to the defense and goaltending for this solid season that the team has been having.
Ottawa ranks 9th in the NHL in goals this season, giving up 167 in 64 games. That’s an average of 2.61 goals per game and it’s helped the team to a good record.
Offensively, the Senators aren’t great but the defense keeps the pressure off most nights. Ottawa ranks 19th in goals this season with 170. The goal-scoring has been led by two players: Kyle Turris and Mark Stone.
Turris has 22 goals and 22 assists for Ottawa, including two goals in his last five games. Meanwhile, Stone also has 22 goals and 27 assists. Over his last five games, he has two assists.
With the playoffs looking less and less likely for the 6th place Dallas Stars out of the Central Division, the team needs every single point going forward. Dallas has been able to get this far in the year on offense alone, but it’ll be tough for the team to make the playoffs without defense.
The Stars rank 2nd to last in goals against this season, giving up 211 in 66 games. That’s an average of 3.2 goals per game, and has led to a lot of losses for Dallas this year.
Offensively, the team has been much better than its defense. The Stars rank 12th in the NHL in goals with 186. Not bad, except when you consider that the team has a minus-25 goal differential.
The scoring has been led by captain Jamie Benn. Benn has 24 goals and 39 assists, including three goals and four assists in the last five games.
NHL Betting Trends:
- The Total has gone OVER in five of Dallas’ last seven games
- Ottawa is 5-2 SU in the last seven games
