We have reached the conference finals in the National Hockey League playoffs, and game one of the Eastern Conference finals will kick off Saturday in Pittsburgh.
The Ottawa Senators will take their talents on the road to the Steel City to take on the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Ottawa Senators come into this series as huge underdogs and I think they are really going to win this game if they want any shot in this series. To win this game they are going to need to get off to a fast start.
They need to be the team scoring the first goal and then need to drop back and play well in the defensive zone.
At the back end of the defensive zone is Craig Anderson and he is going to need a huge game in this one. The Penguins have a ton of weapons and he will need to come out with a couple key saves to keep it close and let his team have a chance at the end.
The biggest for the Pittsburgh Penguins in this game and series is they can’t overlook the Senators. Yes they are the better team but they can’t play like they are the favorites.
They need to play this series like they are the underdogs and come out firing from early on.
If they can get the first goal in this game I don’t think they will ever look back and they will cruise to a victory.

I am not even going to touch the moneyline in this game, I think the Penguins will win, but the payout isn’t great so I will focus on the over/under.

I think the Penguins could cover the over by themselves. I think the Penguins and the Senators will both come out firing and put up a ton of runs in this one.
