Boston Bruins vs Ottawa Senators Matinee NHL Puck Betting Action
Boston has their hulking Captain back in the fold
Although he returned in a hard fought 3-2 loss to Chicago on Thursday night, Boston is happy to have Zdeno Chara back in the fold after he missed six weeks with a knee injury. The Bruins posted an 11-8-1 record with Chara sidelined and their 15-13-1 overall mark has them placed eighth in the Eastern Conference. Boston has been outscored by a 23-17 margin over their last eight games and they have scored 74 goals while giving up 75 tallies so far this season. The Bruins defeated Ottawa 4-2 in Boston back on November 1, 2014.
Ottawa looks to get back on track after firing their head coach
There’s not much margin for error in pro sports as you can go from the penthouse to outhouse in the blink of an eye. Former Senators coach Paul Maclean can attest to that as he went from winning the Jack Adams Coach of the Year award in 2012-13 to the unemployment line after being fired six days ago. Dave Cameron has taken over and the Senators dropped a 5-3 decision at home to Los Angeles in his debut behind the bench. Ottawa has lost five of their last six games in Boston – the last two by a combined 11-4 total score.
NHL Puck Betting Prediction: Boston has posted a 9-6-1 record at home this season while Ottawa is just 5-8-2 in road games. Both squads are struggling to score goals so we expect a low scoring contest here. Despite having very similar records, as well as overall statistics, the Bruins are the more talented team as we see them protecting their home pond today.
