Montreal vs Ottawa: Senators Can Crush Canadiens NHL Season
Ottawa Senators punishing play pushes Habs to the brink
A team that many pundits viewed as over-achievers during the lockout shortened 2013 NHL regular season, the #7 seeded Senators, is now just one win away from advancing to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Heading home to Ottawa with their series tied at 1-1, the Senators punched Montreal in the mouth with a 6-1 Game 3 win and then ripped the Habs hearts out with a come from behind 3-2 OT victory in Game 4 on Tuesday night. This team is on quite a roll – outscoring the Canadiens 14-8 in the series so far.
Montreal Canadiens head home with wounded warriors to face an uphill battle
For their part, Montreal will be without their Captain Brian Gionta for the rest of the season as he will undergo bicep surgery on Friday. Canadiens goaltender Carey Price is questionable tonight, while Brandon Prust and Ryan White are both doubtful. The Habs have fired 146 pucks at Sens goalie Craig Anderson in four games and have netted just eight goals. The Sens have 14 players at +1 or better while the Habs have just three. Ottawa with a +1.5 (-280) puck line at the betonline.ag sportsbook, is worth loading up on in this contest!
