NHL hockey wagering fans will have plenty to consider against the NHL hockey lines in this “Hockey Night in Canada” showcase game. The Ottawa Senators recently fired Coach Craig Hartsburg as he simply couldn’t ignite the team this NHL hockey wagering season.
There has been a bit of improvement in Ottawa’s production against the NHL hockey lines as they won three consecutive games from February 7 through February 12 including back-to-back wins over the Buffalo Sabres followed by a win at Philadelphia.
While new coach Rob Brodie takes over a team that is light years out of a NHL hockey wagering playoff spot he has at least provided a jump start to the Senators. How long it will last is, of course, the big NHL hockey wagering question.
Ottawa had an overall NHL hockey wagering record of 20-25-3-5 straight up and was near break even against the odds with a mark of 26-27. Ottawa has been a NHL hockey wagering disaster on the road, however, with just 6 wins in 27 away games. 16 of those road games went under the total.
Among their many NHL hockey wagering weaknesses is Ottawa’s 28th ranked offense. Their defense ranked 12th. From January 20 through February 12 the Senators went under the total in 7 out of 10 games. Daniel Alfredsson led the Senators in assists with 33 and points with 49 to lead the team.
Dany Heatley led Ottawa in goals with 24. Jason Spezza also led Ottawa with 21 goals but from there the Senators lack of depth has really shown. Montreal was 30-20-2-4 straight up but just 19-37 against the NHL hockey lines. Their defense has been a NHL hockey wagering liability as of late.
Montreal has been a strong NHL hockey wagering team at home with just 6 losses in 27 games as a host. The Habs scored a NHL hockey wagering win at Ottawa on January 17 by a score of 5-4 in this series’ last meeting.
