Ottawa has gone from a bottom 5 team to what looks like a solid top 8 in only a matter of months. Don't underestimate them; Anderson is red hot, and they have some dangerous offensive weapons in Alfie, Spezza, Turris, Michalek, and Foligno; along with Karlsson of course.
Try and win this one 2-1 or 3-1. Don't take too many risks. LGR.
At best we'll go 2-1. I dont see us beating Habs in Montreal.
I'm not optimistic either, but that Montreal team has been terrible lately. We SHOULD beat them, unfortunately our guys struggle in that building. I'm expecting to see Biron in net again.
As for tonight, this is a good test. Senators have been hot lately, but I'm still not sold on them. We've had success against Anderson. If we play our game, stay out of the box and don't beat ourselves, I think we can grind this team down in their own end and it will lead to plenty of quality chances.
The Rangers need to win this game. Continue the streak. This is a good match-up for the Rangers as the Sens defense is not very good. COntrol the puck down low and they will control the game. Get in a run-and-gun type of game and they will have a hard time winning.
