Carolina Hurricanes vs Ottawa Senators predictions

Face-off: 1900 ET, 02/12/2021

Venue: PNC Arena

Carolina came up short against a couple of in-form opponents at the end of last month but can get back on track when entertaining Ottawa at PNC Arena.

The struggling Senators are on a six-match losing streak and are languishing at the bottom of the Eastern Conference table.

They were outscored 31-12 in those games, so 1.87 for a home win by over 1.5 goals spearheads our Carolina Hurricanes vs Ottawa Senators predictions.

Carolina Hurricanes Odds

Carolina are down to fourth in the East after following up a 4-2 home loss to Washington by going down 4-1 at Dallas.

Having registered eight straight wins in October, November was a bit of a reality check for the Hurricanes.

However, a 15-5-1 record at this stage remains healthy and only Calgary have conceded fewer goals in the NHL this term.

Tony DeAngelo continues to look like a shrewd summer signing, 19-year-old rookie Seth Jarvis is earning rave reviews and star duo Sebastian Aho and Andrei Svechnikov are doing the business.

The Hurricanes should have the all-round game to secure a smooth success here and NHL odds.

Ottawa Senators Odds

Ottawa are already resigned to missing out on the play-offs for the fifth straight season after winning only one of their 12 games in November.

The Sens started out this month in similar fashion when hammered 6-2 by Vancouver in front of their own fans last night.

Head coach DJ Smith told the club website: “Right now, we have to stick together and find a way out of this.

“We’re going to keep fighting and give an effort every night. Tonight isn’t the result we wanted but we’re going to battle hard and get better.”

We were on Vancouver to win the third period in our preview of that game and the Canucks obliged 3-1 in that stanza.

Ottawa’s record in the final 20 minutes of games is now a miserable 10-33, with the Senators being last in the NHL in terms of goals scored and top of the table for scores conceded.

It is hard not to go in again for Ottawa to lose the third period at 1.83 in our NHL predictions.
