Having ended a three-game winning run with a defeat in New Jersey, the Carolina Hurricanes (5th in Metropolitan Division) will try to get back on track when visiting the Ottawa Senators (8th in Atlantic), who have recorded two straight victories…

‘Canes Lose In Newark

The Carolina Hurricanes (28-22-6) went 3-1-0 on their current five-date road trip, snapping a three-game winning run with a 3-2 defeat against the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center on Sunday. It was just the third defeat in the past nine outings for the ‘Canes (6-2-1), who are presently sitting 5th in the Metropolitan Division with 62 points from 56 fixtures, trailing a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference by three points. Sebastian Aho is leading the team with 24 goals and 63 points.

After 20 starts thus far this season, goalie Curtis McElhinney, who is set to start on Tuesday, has posted a 13-6-1 tally for the rolling year with a 2.50 GAA and a .915 save percentage. He is 2-4-0 against the Ottawa Senators in previous encounters with a 2.81 GAA and a .911 save percentage. The Hurricanes, meanwhile, are netting the 16th highest quantity of goals per game so far this campaign (2.89), while conceding the 11th lowest amount on the defensive end (2.88). They are 26th in power play with a 16.1% success rate and 15th in penalty kill with 80.1% efficiency.

Sens Bank Consecutive Wins

The Ottawa Senators (21-29-5) won for the second consecutive time, following up Thursday’s 4-0 blanking of the Anaheim Ducks with a 5-2 victory against the Winnipeg Jets at Canadian Tire Centre on Saturday. Both contests started a three-game homestand for the Sens, who had lost five straight matchups previously (0-5-0). Ottawa is 8th in the Atlantic Division with 47 points from 55 outings, 18 points outside the playoff bubble of the Eastern Conference. Mark Stone leads the team with 56 points and is tied with Matt Duchene (53 points) on a team-high 25 goals.

Goalie Anders Nilsson will be looking to record his third consecutive victory when facing Carolina on Tuesday, having already gone 2-3-1 against the Hurricanes historically with a 2.85 GAA and a .901 save percentage. He is 6-4-0 for Ottawa this season with a 2.21 GAA and a .937 save percentage, and 9-12-1 for the whole current campaign with a 2.70 GAA and a .916 save percentage. The Senators meanwhile, are 11th in most goals scored per game (3.13), top of the league in most goals given up on average (3.65), 11th in power play (21.2%) and 25th in penalty kill (77.5%).

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The road team has won three of the past four contests between the two sides, with Carolina banking victories on its last two trips to Ottawa. The Hurricanes have also beaten the Sens on five of the previous six overall tries, so do expect this trend to continue. Carolina has already triumphed in 10 of its last 14 away games versus sides with a losing home record and is bound to bounce back following the defeat at the New Jersey Devils, having performed extremely well since New Year. The Senators have surged in their last two outings, but have won three games in a row just twice so far this season and have been horrid against the Metropolitan Division lately, losing on seven of the past eight occasions.

Prediction: Carolina Hurricanes

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Six of the very last eight encounters between Ottawa and Carolina have been decided with no more than five goals on the scoreboard. So, bank on this one to follow suit. Seven of the past nine Tuesday games of the Hurricanes have already ended on the low-scoring side, with four of the previous five contests of the Senators, following a victory, have done exactly the same.

Prediction: Under 6
