Stephen Nover Free Saturday NHL Play

Senators minus $1.05 hosting Bruins

The price is right to back the home Senators, in a do-or-die match. Ottawa is in serious trouble if losing this game and going to Boston for Game 3 down 0-2 in the series. Only 12.7 percent of teams down 0-2 have come back to win a Stanley Cup series, according to research compiled by

The Bruins nipped the Senators in the opening game, 2-1, on a late goal despite getting outshot by Ottawa. The Senators throughly out-played the Bruins in the second period holding them to zero shots on goal while firing off 12.

The Bruins are banged-up both offensively and defensively. Boston is likely to be without Torey Krug, Brandon Carlo and Colin Miller on defense while also missing forward David Krejci. Krejci played in every regular-season game, scoring a career-high 23 goals. He would be replaced by Ryan Spooner, who failed to score a goal during his last 15 games and didn’t play well during the first game of this series.

Meanwhile, the Senators could get back defenseman Marc Method, who has been out since March 23 due to a finger injury.

Until the Senators lost to the Bruins in Game 1, they had won five in a row at home versus Boston.
