Slumping Senators hope to break losing streak vs Canadiens

The Montreal Canadiens welcome the Ottawa Senators to the Bell Centre tonight and will look to pile on the Sens’ misery. Ottawa has been in a tailspin of late, going 2-7 SU in its last nine games and losing six straight. The Senators opened as +115 road dogs to get the victory in Montreal.

SHARK BITES
  • The Senators are 0-4 SU in their last four games against the Canadiens.
  • The total has gone UNDER in nine of the Canadiens’ last 11 games.
  • The Senators are 1-4 SU and ATS in their last five games against teams with losing records.

The Senators haven’t been the same since their trip to Sweden. After the two-game series with Colorado, Ottawa has yet to get a win back in North America and it’s mainly due to lack of scoring. During their six-game losing streak, the Sens have been outscored 21-8 and rank dead last in scoring in the NHL during that stretch. Expecting Ottawa to snap out of it tonight could be a tough proposition for bettors as they’re also 0-7 ATS during that time frame.

The Habs have their MVP back. Goaltender Carey Price has played two games in his return from injuries and it’s no coincidence the Canadiens won both of those games and allowed only one goal. Montreal is a team that can beat anyone if Price is between the pipes and if he can stay healthy, the Canadiens can make a run back into playoff contention.

The total opened at 5.5 goals in this matchup and bettors should consider the UNDER. As I mentioned, Ottawa is having serious difficulty scoring goals and the UNDER has hit in four of its last six games. When you factor in the UNDER has hit in Montreal’s last four games, it’s looking to be a defensive-minded battle at the Bell Centre.
