The scheduling after the NHL all-star game is always a bit weird as teams ease back into play at different paces. Take Friday night’s game between the Senators and Penguins for example. Ottawa is playing their first game in 10 days while the Penguins will be in action for the third time this week. Who has the edge in that regards?
If Ottawa cold somehow pull off the upset they’d pay out handsomely at +221. A Sens win may be improbable, but it’s not impossible as that’s just what happened when the teams met up on December 8th as Ottawa scored a 2-1 win over the Penguins to hit as +175 home underdogs.
The Senators are in last place in the East but they were a respectable 4-5-1 in their last 10 games before the Winter hiatus. Ottawa is just 7-16-1 on the road this year but they will be up against a Penguins team that may be fatigued playing their 3rd game in 5 nights after a 9 day layoff.
The Penguins haven’t looked very recharged after the all-star break as they’ve dropped both games back so far including a 3-6 home loss to the Devils as -222 favorites. Pittsburgh is a hefty favorite again Friday at -248 but can you trust them at that price?
Pittsburgh is still pretty solid at 5th place in the Eastern Conference. They can get a solid win on Friday depending on which Matt Murray shows up in net the Penguins goaltender is 8-2 over his last 10, but he’s allowed 4+ goals in 3 of 5 starts.
NHL Betting Trends:

Free Ottawa Senators vs. Pittsburgh Penguins NHL Prediction:
Quite frankly there’s no reason to take the Penguins on the ML in this contest at -248. Pittsburgh could get a 2 or 3 goal win as Ottawa could be a bit lackadaisical in their first game back from the break as we’ve seen a lot of teams be so far this past week.
