Sens are Faltering on the Road

Craig Anderson

The Ottawa Senators may have gotten a little too comfortable in the Canadian Tire Centre, but they’ll be looking to solve their road woes Saturday in the Golden State. Ottawa has been outscored by an 11-2 margin in the first two contests of their five-game road trip.

Shark Bites
  • The Senators are 13-3 in their last 16 games vs the Pacific Division.
  • The Senators are 1-6 in their last 7 meetings with the Kings in Los Angeles.
  • The Kings are 9-3 in their last 12 Saturday games.

In fact, the Sens’ offensive woes aren’t exactly breaking news. Ottawa has found the back of the net just 18 times during its last 11 games, going 3-7-1 over that span.

After a down year last season, Los Angeles has begun to look like their normal selves in the 2015-16 campaign, especially on home ice. The Kings are a sizzling 14-3-1 in their last 18 matchups in front of their hometown fans.

L.A. has been a fantastic play for bettors banking on low-scoring affairs lately, as the UNDER has gone 5-1 in the last six times the Kings have hit the ice.
