Ottawa, with wins in just two of the last seven games, are desperate for some wins in these last eight games and will look for that to start against the Philadelphia Flyers.
Philadelphia, coming off an impressive 6-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins, will look to grab another big win against the Atlantic Division’s Ottawa Senators.
This season has been a success for the Ottawa Senators and a lot of that success can be attributed to the team’s defense and goaltending. The Senators rank 8th in the NHL in goals against, giving up 2.58 goals per game.
The goaltending has been strong, thanks to starter Craig Anderson. He is 22-10-2 with a 2.32 goals against average and a .927 save percentage. Anderson has been a great presence in goal and his high level of play will be crucial in the postseason.
The offense has been another story, struggling at times to produce and take pressure off of that defense. The Senators rank 21st in the league in goals, averaging 2.62 goals per game. The team doesn’t have a lot of scorers, relying on the production of Mike Hoffman, Mark Stone, and Kyle Turris.
Hoffman has been great all year, putting up 22 goals and 33 assists. In his last five games, he has a goal and five assists. Stone has been important as well. He also has 22 goals, along with 28 assists. In his last five games, he has three assists but has been held goalless.
Kyle Turris leads the team with 25 goals, while also tallying 24 assists. In his last five, he has two goals and two assits.
Sitting 7th in the Metropolitan Division, the season has gone from bad to worse for the Philadelphia Flyers, who struggle on both ends of the ice and can’t string wins together because of those struggles.
The Flyers, offensively, are extremely weak. The team averages just 2.63 goals per game, ranking 20th in the NHL. The goal-scoring has been led by Wayne Simmonds, who has 29 goals and 20 assists on the year. In his last five games, he doesn’t have a single goal and has two assists.
The Flyers’ only other 20-plus goal scorer this season is Brayden Schenn. Schenn has been solid this season, putting up 22 goals and 27 assists. In his last five games, he has a goal and two assists.
Only one other player even has more than 15 goals this season and that’s Jakub Voracek, who has 19 goals and 38 assists. He has two goals in his last five games.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Ottawa is 4-2 ATS in the last six games

Free Ottawa Senators vs. Philadelphia Flyers NHL Hockey Prediction:
Ottawa has struggled over the past 10 games and is looking extremely shaky heading into the playoffs. However, the Flyers haven’t been much better and have had a very disappointing season. With Mark Stone on the ice, the Senators should generate some goals and get the W on the road.

It’s been a very poor second half of the season for the Philadelphia Flyers, while the Senators have had a good year despite the recent string of losses. With Ottawa being the underdog, the Senators money line is a great bet in this one.
