Senators at Maple Leafs: What Bettors Need to Know
By Covers.com

Ottawa Senators at Toronto Maple Leafs (-145, 5)

Injuries appear to be finally catching up with the Ottawa Senators, who are winless three games into a five-game road trip. Ottawa continues its trip with a visit to Toronto to face the Northeast Division rival Maple Leafs for the third time this season on Wednesday. Toronto defeated the Senators 3-0 at home on Feb. 16 for the first of two consecutive shutout performances by Ben Scrivens, but Ottawa won at home against the Maple Leafs 3-2 one week later as part of a five-game winning streak. Now the Maple Leafs and Senators find themselves tied with 28 points apiece midway through their five-game season series.

The Senators, who are missing top center Jason Spezza, Norris Trophy winner Erik Karlsson and starting goaltender Craig Anderson, have yet to face Toronto netminder James Reimer this season. Reimer has won both his starts since returning from a strained MCL and is 5-1-1 with two shutouts in his career against Ottawa. The Senators have split their last four starts between Ben Bishop, who was in net for Ottawa’s home win over Toronto, and rookie Robin Lehner, who is 0-0-2 this season.

ABOUT THE SENATORS (12-7-4): Despite suffering his season-ending achilles injury three weeks ago, Karlsson still leads the team with six goals. Jim O’Brien, who has one goal in his last seven games, is second with five. Ottawa hasn’t scored more than three goals in a game since Feb. 5 - a span of 13 contests. Bishop and Lehner have performed well in Anderson’s absence. Lehner has allowed two goals in each of his two overtime losses, while Bishop has a goals-against average of 2.15 and a .938 save percentage in seven games.

ABOUT THE MAPLE LEAFS (14-9-0): Nazem Kadri has four goals and nine points on a five-game scoring streak and leads the team with 23 on the season. Kadri’s linemate Clarke MacArthur has six points on a five-game streak. James van Riemsdyk has a team-leading 12 goals. Matt Frattin, who scored seven goals in 10 games this season and showed great chemistry with Kadri before being injured, has been cleared for contact at practice and could return to the lineup on Wednesday.

TRENDS:

* Under is 18-7-1 in the last 26 meetings.
* Under is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in Toronto.
* Maple Leafs are 4-1 in their last five home games.
* Senators are 1-8 in their last nine road games.

OVERTIME:

1. Toronto signed D Korbinian Holzer to a two-year contract extension on Tuesday. Holzer has appeared in 16 games this season, with two goals, 39 hits and 35 blocked shots.

2. Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson hasn’t recorded a point in five games but has 70 in 77 career games against the Maple Leafs.

3. Ottawa and Toronto will meet again in Ottawa on March 30 and close their season series in Toronto on April 20.
