7:35 PM EST. We understand that the Sens have issues. We understand that they’re the second best team here but let’s put that aside, as the Golden Knights come in as a very frustrated team that can’t buy a win or a timely goal these days. When wins are hard to come by, players start gripping their sticks a little bit tighter and goals become even more elusive.
In a year in which goal scoring is way up, Vegas has scored a mere 34 goals in 15 games, whereas most teams are in the 45-50 goals scored range with a few clubs above 50. The Knights got Max Pacioretty back last game but they lost Erik Haula so they are no better off. When a team is not getting the breaks, there will be a correction at some point and we’d be willing to get behind the Knights when they’re taking back a price or being undervalued at home but that’s not the case here at all. With no scoring and weak goaltending, the Knights are a big road favorite, thus it’s not the right time to get behind them.
Ottawa is very likely going to get outplayed here, as the analytics say so but we’ll live with that and hope that Marc Andre Fleury has another bad game. Besides that, the Sens are coming off a spirit lifting, 7-3 win over the Devils and there’s a great chance that rookie sensation, Brady Tkachuk will be back in the lineup here. The Senators could score three times here and win but don’t be surprised if they score more and win. Overlay.
