Ottawa vs Carolina
I have no doubt what should be the best betting option in this meeting between Ottawa Senators and Carolina Hurricanes. It's over the totals.
Two sides who are both out of playoffs race, two sides who are not paying much attention right now on defensive part of their game.
As a result, they both mainly are involved in high scoring games as of late.
Carolina is in series of six straight over the totals. And it wasn't only thanks to weak defense and poor goaltending (31 goals allowed in those 6 games) but also thanks to good offensive numbers (22 goals scored in those six games).
On the other side Ottawa went 4-2 in favor of over in last six. This team has allowed even 13 goals only in last two games, both at home, vs Florida and vs Edmonton.
Mike London will start on Ottawa goal. His numbers are pretty much in the line with expected over. For Carolina is yet to be confirmed. But honestly, how lately their goaltenders looked, I don't take too much important which one would be tonight.
