Saturday's NHL Prediction
Two teams looking to stay in the Northeast Division race meet on Saturday in the NHL when Ottawa hosts Boston.
Boston is 5-2-0 on the season for 10 points. The Bruins trail Montreal by five points in the division. The Bruins have scored 20 goals and allowed just 11 and are 3-0-0 on the road this season.
Ottawa is 4-5-1 this season for 9 points. The Senators have scored 26 goals but allowed 31. They are 3-2-0 at home.
Here is a look at the trends and my pick for Saturday’s game.
Boston Bruins at Ottawa Senators, 7PM ET
Trends favor Boston as they have won five of the last six games in Ottawa and are 4-1 in their last five against the Eastern Conference and 6-2 in their last eight games following a win.
Ottawa is just 4-17 in their last 21 games when playing on 1 day of rest and 1-11 in their last 12 games on Saturday.
