Flames Have Owned Sens at the Saddledome

Continuing their western Canadian road trip with a stop at the Saddledome, the Senators take on the Flames in a game that opened with the visitors tabbed as slight underdogs in a building they have a hard time winning in.

SHARK BITES
  • The Senators are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games on the road against the Flames.
  • Mike Smith has a career .892 save percentage against the Senators.
  • The total has gone OVER in 6 of the Senators’ last 7 games against the Flames.

Not having Erik Karlsson in the lineup has clearly had a negative impact on the Senators. They’ve yet to score a power-play goal in 16 opportunities to start the season and they’ve won just one game – against the Canucks. The injured former Norris winner had 27 points on the man advantage last year and is sorely missed.

The Flames, on the other hand, have given up only one goal on the penalty kill and they’ve excelled up a man, scoring four on the power play already after four games. Jaromir Jagr, the Flames’ newest addition, will only help in that area as he potted eight PP goals for the Panthers last season.

Margins are tight in this one but the Flames’ advantage on special teams right now gives them the edge.
