The Ottawa Senators will travel to the Big Apple on Tuesday night to take the ice against the New York Rangers. Ottawa will be looking for their fifth win in a row after coming away with a 2-1 win in overtime against the Anaheim Ducks at home on Thursday. The Rangers will be looking to put an end to a two game losing streak after falling 4-7 against the Minnesota Wild on Friday.
The Senators have now been able to win four games in a row after coming out on top 2-1 against the Ducks at home last Thursday night. After a scoreless first period, Ottawa was able to get on the board first with a goal from Ryan Dzingel at 1:02 in the second. The game was forced into overtime where Mike Hoffman was able to score his 10th of the season on a power play at 4:03 to give the Senators the win.
Ottawa has had some issues when it comes to putting the puck in the net this season and are currently 21st in the league with an average of 2.5 goals per game. They are just below the league average on the power play, converting on just 17.6 percent of their opportunities. The Senators have been able to play solid on the defensive end of the ice, ranking 10th in the NHL in goals against with an average of 2.6 per night. They have struggled at times this year when skating a man down, giving up a goal 18.3 percent of the time.
New York Rangers
The New York Rangers took a second straight loss in ugly fashion last Friday, getting beat up at home 4-7 by the Minnesota Wild. The Rangers managed to get on the board first with the 10th of the year from Chris Kreider at 3:54 in the first. Ryan McDonagh was able to make it 2-3 at 2:17 in the second period with his second goal of the season. Derek Stepan brought the game to 3-6 at 19:00 minutes the same period and Kreider found the net again at 17:00 minutes in the third, after it was already too late.
New York will come into this one ranked 3rd in the league in scoring, finding the net for an average of 3.3 goals per game. They have been consistent on the power play this year, converting on 20 percent of their opportunities. Despite the beating they took against the Wild, the Rangers are still ranked 9th in the NHL in goals against, holding their opponents to an average of just 2.4 per night.

Free Ottawa Senators vs. New York Rangers NHL Hockey Prediction:
Nights like last Friday are going to happen every now and then, you can only try to win as many as possible in between the occasions. The Rangers should have no problem getting back on track and getting a win at home here. I look for New York to be aggressive with the puck on offense and taking a lot of shots early. Eventually, something will hit.
