THE TEAM NEWS

OTTAWA SENATORS

  • Ottawa Senators sit bottom of the Atlantic Division standings with a record of 1-4-0 after they were shutout by Minnesota Wild in their last game as they failed to back up their first win of the season against Tampa Bay Lightning.
  • After a goalless opening two periods, the Senators were right in the game but conceded two goals in the final 10 minutes to fall to their fourth defeat of the season and now face a run of three road games starting with Vegas Golden Knights.
  • Artem Anisimov was forced from the ice in his team’s win over the Lightning and his lower body injury saw him sit out the loss to Wild but could come back into contention for this match with him deemed day-to-day.

VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS

  • Vegas Golden Knights were once again unable to make it three wins in a row as their winning streak was halted at two matches after suffering a big defeat at home to Nashville Predators in their last game.
  • The 5-2 reverse meant that the Golden Knights now possess a 4-3-0 record thanks to the disappointing loss which came despite taking a 1-2 lead into the second period but four unanswered goals saw the Predators come out on top.
  • Malcolm Subban remained on the sidelines for his team’s defeat against Nashville which was the third straight game he has been absent with a lower body injury and he is still a doubt for this game with Oscar Dansk set to be the back-up goaltender if he is unavailable.

THE PREDICTION

Ottawa Senators have not started the season well and despite playing just one game on the road from their five games so far, they have only collected one win. That does not bode well for a three-match road trip starting with Vegas Golden Knights. The home team will be keen to make an immediate return to winning ways after losing out in their last contest and having defeated the Senators in three of their four clashes last season, they should be able to claim the win here.
