The NHL is back in action today as the Canadian derby is on the schedule. The Ottawa Senators will clash with the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario.
The Senators are heading into this game after a 2-0 home defeat against Detroit. On the other side, the Maple Leafs enjoyed a 6-1 home win against the Ducks.
Ottawa Senators Form
The Senators are heading into this game after another home defeat. Also, it is safe to say that the Sens are the worst team in the NHL this season. It seems that there is no light at the end of the tunnel for this team. Well, at least not this season.
Ottawa has for defeats in a row and it will be hard for them in this game. One positive is, Mark Stone as he scored 22 goals so far this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Senators away record stands at 2.87 goals per game.
On the defensive side of the game, their away conceding record stands at 4.32 goals per game.
Moreover, their play conversion rate stands at 21.1 % and their penalty efficiency is at 76.4 %.
Toronto Maple Leafs Form
The Maple Leafs played well in their last game. They demolished the Ducks with a score of 6-1. However, it seems that this Toronto team is a bit inconsistent lately. Therefore, this win came at the right time for them. Now, the Maple Leafs have 3 wins in their last 4 games. They will aim to maintain that winning momentum after this game.
On the offensive side of the game, the Maple Leafs home record stands at 3.36 goals per game.
On the defensive side of the game, Toronto is allowing an average of 2.68 goals per game at home.
Moreover, their play conversion success is at 21.2% with their penalty kill at 80.5%.
The Senators are having a bad season, to say the least. They have been losing games against teams such as the Red Wings and that does not help.
On the other side, the Maple Leafs are playing well this season. After some bad run in the previous month, the Maple Leafs now have 3 wins out of the last 4 games. They play at home and I expect another dominant performance by them in this game. Take Toronto in this one.
