Panthers, Senators Lacking Scoring Punch

The Florida Panthers and Ottawa Senators have historically had a difficult time finding the back of the net against one another, with the UNDER going 6-2 in the past eight between the two clubs. Through those eight games the Sens and Panthers have combined for five goals on four occasions, which makes the opening total of five a little scary though.

Shark Bites
  • The Panthers are 8-3 in their past 11 games within the Atlantic Division.
  • The Senators are 12-3 SU in their past 15 games coming off consecutive losses.
  • The UNDER is 5-0 in the Senators’ past five games against the Atlantic Division.

Ottawa has been fledgling so far this month, with the Senators winning just one of their five games so far in March. Despite struggling to win SU, puckline could be an attractive alternative as four of the Sens five games this month were decided by one goal.

The Panthers have been a solid play in Florida as the team has has gone 14-6 in their past 20 games at BB&T Center. However, the Panthers have traditionally faltered when hosting the Senators as they are 8-21 in their past 28 games hosting Ottawa.
