An easy winner with Columbus last night as they win 5-1 over the Calgary to improve their impressive streak and get closer to a playoff spot in the Western Conference.
Here on Saturday we have 9 games including 3 afternoon games, and both of my plays are early games. I’ve got a 4 unit game of the week pick and a 2 unit play posted below.
4 UNIT = SENT TO MEMBERS ONLY
2 UNIT = Tampa Bay Lightning @ Ottawa Senators – SENATORS TO WIN (-131) *EARLY START*
(Note: I’m risking 2.00 units to win 1.53 units)
The Lightning are 13-16-1 on the year and just 5-9 on the road. They are coming off a 4-2 loss in Toronto. Ottawa is 16-9-6 on the season and a solid 10-2-3 at home. They are coming off a 2-1 loss against a good Bruins team, but they had won 3 straight prior to that. Tampa Bay beat Ottawa in their only meeting so far this season but that was back in January when the Lightning were playing well and it was in Tampa Bay. The Senators won all 4 meetings between these two teams last season including 4-1 and 4-2 at home. Robin Lehner is in net for Ottawa and he is 2-1-4 with a stellar 1.92 GAA and .944 SV%. Take the Sens at home.
