Ottawa vs Winnipeg: Playoff Hopes Remain for Senators and Jets

Ottawa vs Winnipeg: Playoff Hopes Remain for Senators and Jets
A pair of streaking squads meet when Winnipeg hosts Ottawa during National Hockey League action tonight. Somewhat surprisingly, the Senators are chasing three teams for the final Wild Card playoff spot in the East while the Jets have a tenuous hold on a postseason position in the West. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:30 PM ET on March 4, 2015, from the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Ottawa Senators: Aim to get back to their winning ways

Twelve points out of a playoff position on February 7, Ottawa is on a roll as they are 7-1-2 over their last ten games. That run, coupled with major stumbles by Boston, has the Senators six points behind the Bruins for the final Wild Card spot and Ottawa has a game in hand. The Sens dropped a 3-2 (SO) decision in Minnesota last night. Prior to that, over their last five games – including three on the road, Ottawa took out five playoff contending teams by a combined 16-5 count.

Winnipeg Jets: Slipping but still clinging to their first franchise playoff spot in seven years

Not quite as hot as Ottawa, Winnipeg is holding their own in the tough NHL Western Conference. Posting a 5-3-4 record, the Jets earned at least one point in nine of their twelve games in February. Winnipeg is 6-2-2 over their past ten contests and they opened March with an impressive 5-2 win at home over the red hot Los Angeles Kings on Sunday.The Jets are five points behind Chicago for third in the Central and four points up on the Kings in the Wild Card race in the West.

NHL Puck Betting Prediction: Ottawa is playing the last of a five game road trip, that included three stops in California, so that is a slight concern here. However, we get a couple of teams that are very evenly matched in this contest tonight so we are taking the pucks here. Back Ottawa with a 300 unit wager on the spread price posted at the SportsInteraction online sportsbook.
