Battle of Ontario Seeing A Lot Of Goals

The Toronto Maple Leafs will welcome their provincial rivals, the Ottawa Senators, Saturday night in the newest chapter of the Battle of Ontario. Offense has been the name of the game when these teams meet as the OVER is 8-2 in the past 10 meetings between the Leafs and Sens. Those 10 games have seen a combined average of 6.8 goals per game.

Shark Bites
  • The Senators are just 1-6 in their past seven games in Toronto.
  • The Maple Leafs are 1-5 in their past five games at the ACC.
  • The OVER is 10-5 in the Senators past 15 games.

Of course, the biggest story coming from this game is the return of Dion Phaneuf to the Air Canada Centre after the Leafs traded their long-time captain to the Ottawa Senators in the beginning of February. The trade was the first move in the Leafs mission to tank this season, with Toronto winning just two of 10 games since Phaneuf was shipped off.

As profitable as the OVER has been when the Leafs and Sens clash, Toronto’s lack of offense has made them a hot UNDER player lately. The Leafs have gone UNDER in five consecutive games with the team netting just one goal on three occasions.

The Senators have been struggling on the road all season, but it has been accentuated as of late. Ottawa has just two wins in their past seven road games with those two victories coming against the lowly Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers.
