Montreal Canadiens vs Ottawa Senators Tips


It was a case of bottom beating top on Thursday when the Ottawa Senators pulled off a surprise 3-2 win over then West Division leaders the Montreal Canadiens. 

Despite that setback that saw them surrender top-spot to the Toronto Maple Leafs, I’m picking the Canadiens to gain revenge on Saturday with a hard fought victory over Ottawa. 

Montreal will win by a margin of 2.0 goals or less, with BTTS.

  • Montreal have conceded at least one goal in all eight of their wins this season 
  • St Louis have featured BTTS in all but one game this season 
  • Montreal are on a four-match winning streak 
  • Ottawa have scored in all but two of their games this season 

Head to Head

 
The Montreal Canadiens and the Ottawa Senators have faced each other 103 times in their history. The Senators currently lead Montreal by the narrowest of margins, 52-51. However, in the ten games played since the start of 2018 the Canadiens have been the more dominant team, and lead their recent head to head 7-3.  

Montreal Canadiens Form

 
Montreal can go back to the top of the North Division with a win over Ottawa if results go their way. 

The Canadiens have won seven and lost four this season, including two overtime defeats. 

They are 5-2 in their last seven matches, with losses to Calgary and most recently Ottawa. 

Canadiens Team News

 
Montreal right wing Joel Armia will miss Saturday’s rematch with the Senators due to injury. 

The Canadiens will be relying on the in-form trio of right wing Tyler Toffoli (9 goals), defender Jeff Petry (8 assists) and goal tender Carey Price, who has led the team to four wins from the five games he has played in goal. 

Ottawa Senators Form

 
The Senators are currently rock bottom of the all-Canadian North Division, with just five points from 11 games played. 

After winning their opening fixture of the season, the Senators went on a  nine-game losing streak, which finally ended with victory over Montreal this week. 

Ottawa are only playing for pride, and if they could score another win over Montreal, they could close the current four-point gap between themselves and sixth placed Calgary. 

Senators Team News

 
Unfortunately Ottawa may be without defender Thomas Chabot, who has scored three goals and has 4 assists. Chabot has been injured since February 2. 

The Senators will be hoping that defender Christian Wolanin will be off the injured list and fit for Saturday’s game. 

Ottawa will likely start with goal tender Matt Murray between the sticks. Murray was in goal for both of the Senators two victories this season, and has a remarkable save rate of 88%. 

Verdict


I’m backing BTTS, with the Montreal Canadiens defeating the Ottawa Senators by 2.0 goals or less.
