Ottawa Senators vs Winnipeg Jets 02/13/2021 Betting Odds:
Fifteen games into the season, it seems that the Ottawa Senators still could not quite figure out what the real problem is. The team remains as the worst team in the league, winning just two of their games so far. Ottawa could not catch a break. Just when they thought things couldn’t get any worse, goalie Matt Murray went down and had to exit the game after the second period of the last game due to an inadvertent collision with Nikita Zaitsev. Coach D.J. Smith revealed that Murray’s departure was more of a precautionary measure, but that still left his team with Marcus Hogberg on the net, which eventually allowed two goals on 11 shots in the third period. The Senators are aware of the tough situation they are in right now, and them being tagged as underdogs is a no-brainer. But they still have to show up and provide a rather respectable fight against the Jets
Players to watch: B. Tkachuk LW (G 3, A 5, PTS 8), J. Norris C (G 3, A 5, PTS 8), T. Chabot D (G 3, A 4, PTS 7).
Needless to say, the Jets have the Senators’ number this season. Perhaps, the overall struggles of Ottawa, in general, this year contribute as to why they could not get past the Jets. But still, being unblemished against any team in the NHL after four meetings speak about downright dominance. That is what Winnipeg has over Ottawa, and it appears that they do not have any plans on surrendering the flawless advantage that they have on the head-to-head matchup. Connor Hellebuyck, who made 41 saves last game, and Paul Stastny and Nikolaj Ehlers, who each had a goal and an assist, are gearing up for a more resounding performance to complete the two-game sweep. For them, there is no reason to take the Senators for granted. Every win in a shortened season counts, so Jets fans must expect nothing but 100% effort from their team on Saturday afternoon.
