Slumping Sens Haven't Lost to Bruins in Over a Year

Unsuccessful in the first half of their doubleheader, the Bruins headed back to Boston last night with tails firmly between legs to get set to host a Senators team they’re chasing in the standings. Little stands between the six teams jockeying for position in the Eastern Conference so a division battle like the one we’ll be treated to tonight should have a playoff-like atmosphere.  

SHARK BITES
  • The Bruins are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games on the 2nd half of a back-to-back.
  • The visiting team is 1-6 SU in its last 7 games in this matchup.
  • The Bruins are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games at home.

With eight of their final 10 games on home ice, the Bruins are primed to make a run at the Atlantic title and it’s games like the one tonight that will go a long way in deciding who eventually raises the banner. The Bruins have been one of the best teams in the NHL this month, outshooting their opponents by seven shots per game in their nine contests so far in March.

The Senators, however, have taken eight of the last 10 against the Bruins, including four straight wins dating back to January 2016. These teams will play twice more this season – both times in Boston – and the Bruins will be motivated to even the season series.

Ottawa has lost four straight heading into this one, including three division matchups. Another few losses to Atlantic Division competition could bring an end to the Sens’ narrowing hopes at winning it and another L tonight would make their losing streak the longest of the 2016-17 season.
