Pittsburgh Penguins vs Ottawa Senators Prediction 4/5/16 Profitable Hockey Picks and NHL Hockey Starting Goalies Tonight
The Penguins are coming into Ottawa after a nice win over the Flyers, bringing their winning streak up to six in a row. Ottawa is coming it at the other end of things, losing four of their last six. Pittsburgh also has the upper hand historically here, winning four of the last five games in this series. Ottawa is out of the playoffs, but could serve as a spoiler if they win tonight. However, Pittsburgh has a good streak rolling and will likely be coming in with a lot of momentum.
The Penguins (46-25-4) are really on fire right now. Not only have they won their last six games in a row, but 12 of their last 13 games, total, outscoring their opponents 31-2 in this current win streak. Matt Murray will get the start tonight, winning his last five in a row for the Penguins. Murray is 7-3 for the season, with a 1.26 GAA on the road. Pittsburgh comes in tonight ranked third in the league in scoring, but their offense has been even hotter than that lately.
The Senators (36-34-3) are playing spoiler at this point, but haven’t been able to capitalize on that role as they fell against the Flyers on the weekend, who are fighting for a playoff spot. Craig Anderson will get the call here, currently 30-28 on the season, and 5-9 in his career against the Penguins. Defense has been a struggle for Ottawa all year, as they come in just 27th in goals allowed, and 29th in the penalty kill. They’ll have to focus on their better scoring side of things, where they come in at 8th in the league.
Pittsburgh Penguins vs Ottawa Senators Prediction 4/5/16
Penguins won’t stop scoring and I don’t expect them to stop. I doubt their new head coach want’s them to stop with the playoffs around the corner. Take the Penguins to destroy the Senators tonight.
