Senators Head to New Jersey and Back to Winning Ways?
The Ottawa Senators will travel to New Jersey on Thursday to meet the Devils and will look to both take advantage of the Devils poor recent form and bounce back straight away from their recent 3-2 loss at the hands of the Buffalo Sabers.
The Devils are in uninspired form and sit way down in 12th place in the Eastern Conference, with 8 points separating them from a playoff place, while the Sens will be welcoming back goalie Craig Anderson which gives them a huge boost. Erik Karlsson will also feature and he'll be looking to add to his impressive 8 goals and 38 assists over in the Garden State.
While the Devils may not be in top shape they will take to the ice coming off a good win against Colorado Avalanche and after their bye week their run of recent form stands at 5-4-1 over the last 10 games, however the overall stats are not on their side as they're down in 29th place as far as offense goes with just 2.27 goals per game, with a goals against of 2.82 seeing them down in 17th in the defensive table.
They will of course be depending on goalie Cory Schneider to keep the Sens offense at bay and hope that their own offense can at least cause a little damage, and you can get all the pre game odds over at Bovada right now, where you may wager on your home PC or your mobile device.
