The Senators finally broke their awful six-match losing streak, registering what could be described as a sensational win over Carolina (3-2). The club did not stop there and earned two more victories in a row - over Colorado (6-5 including OT) and in the shootout over New Jersey (2-2, shootout series 2-1). The result lifted Ottawa to the penultimate spot in the vacant East standings and seventh in the Atlantic Division with 15 points.
The Islanders were able to fight against Chicago in the last game. Opponents did not have the most spectacular hockey, but the shootout is always interesting to watch. The result was a 2-2 loss to the Islanders (shootout 0-1). However, that loss was by no means their first - their 11th straight. Thanks to their good start, the Islanders are still not in last place in the standings, but the same is not true for the Capital Division. They are 14 points short of the play-off zone, and a comeback is possible but unlikely.
Expert Betting Tips
We will give preference to the hosts. The Senators have performed very well in the last three meetings, beating a powerful Colorado (6-5 including OT) and Carolina (3-2). On the other hand, the Islanders have lost to anyone for the last 11 games. In general, we believe that it is best to play on the Senators’ goals in this game.
