One of the reason is because their first line is better than our first line. Most of the goals ottawa scores against us this season are from their first line.

Heres the percentage their 1st line score against us from each of the 6 game

Game 6: Ott won, 2 of the 3 goals were scored by Ott first line
Game 5: Ott won, 6 on 6
Game 4: Mtl won 4-3, Habs first line scored 3 goals, Sens first line scored 1
Game 3: Ott won, 3 of the 4 goals were scored by Ott first line
Game 2: Ott won, 2 of the 3 goals were scored by Ott first line
Game 1: Ott won, 2 of the 4 goals were scored by Ott first line

So on the 5 wins against us, 75% of the Sens goal were scored by their first line. I think that explains it all. So to beat the Sens, we have to stop their first line.
