Ottawa Senators vs Chicago Blackhawks 01/14/2020 –
The Chicago Blackhawks will head over to Ontario to start a three-game road trip in Canada and face the Ottawa Senators inside the Canadian Tire Center on Tuesday. The Blackhawks are still looking for solutions to turn their season around as they are still at the bottom of the Central Division standings with a 20-20-6 tally and are seven points behind a playoff spot.
The home team is likewise on the rough road this season, having an even worse record than the visitors with a 16-22-7 register. They are at the seventh position in the Atlantic and are four games and 12 points ahead of the cellar-dwelling Detroit Red Wings.
The Senators are getting the edge based on the updated NHL Odds despite the numbers as the home crowd is expected to provide an advantage for the team.

Ottawa Senators vs Chicago Blackhawks 01/14/2020 Betting Odds:
The pressure is mounting for goals and points team leader Anthony Duclair as he stretched his scoreless skid to seven games. Jean-Gabriel Pageau, who is another usual offensive threat for the Senators, has been a missing factor as well for Ottawa Senators as he is on his own three-game scoreless slide. The team surely is missing the services of Mark Borowiecki and Dylan Strome who both missed the last two games.
Players to watch: Anthony Duclair (GP 44, G 21, A 11, PTS 32), Jean-Gabriel Pageau (GP 45, G 19, A 11, PTS 30), Brady Tkachuk (GP 45, G 14, A 11, PTS 25).
Dominik Kubalik continues to be the silver lining to the struggling Blackhawks. The first-year player has accumulated a total of 16 goals so far this season and has amassed a total of five goals during a four-game goal run.
Patrick Kane is still expected to provide his usual spark as he still leads the team in points with 57. In his last six games, he was able to chalk up four goals and six assists.
Players to watch: Patrick Kane (GP 46, G 24, A 33, PTS 57), Jonathan Toews (GP 46, G 11, A 24, PTS 35), Dominik Kubalik (GP 44, G 16, A 10, PTS 26).
