The NHL is back in action today as the Ottawa Senators will clash with the Carolina Hurricanes.
This is the 2nd game of a home-and-home series and the Senators won game one by a score of 4-1.
Ottawa Senators Form
The Senators are not having a good time this season. Moreover, they are under.500 and close to the bottom of the Atlantic Division. It seems that this team just cannot get back to the success from a few years ago when they played in the playoffs. However, they have won their last two games to improve the overall mode in the
Filip Chlapik, Vladislav Namestnikov and Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Brady Tkachuk scored in the win against the Hurricanes. Now they have a good chance to win a back to back against the same opponent.
On the offensive side of the game, the Senators score an average of 2.81 goals per game which is enough for the 21st spot in the league in scoring. Also, they concede an average of 3.13 goals per game.
Carolina Hurricanes Form
The Hurricanes are one of the teams that had a good start of the season. However, they were not able to keep up the pace as they have fallen back lately. They are far from that early form which enabled them to win their first 5 games of the season. They have lost their last four games and 7 of their last 10.
The only positive in the last week was was Andrei Svechnikov as he scored his 7th goal this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Hurricanes score an average of 3.06 goals per game which is enough for the 14th spot in the league in scoring.
On the defensive side of the game, Carolina is conceding an average of 2.94 goals per game which is also enough for the 14th spot in the league in scoring defence.
The Senators managed to win the previous game and now they have two wins in a row. However, that does not change the fact that Ottawa is one of the worst teams in the NHL this season.
On the other side, the Hurricanes need to win this game and they have the quality. I expect a win for Carolina in this one as they have a solid 6-3 record at home this season. Take the Hurricanes to bounce back.
