Ottawa Senators vs Pittsburgh Penguins Prediction

I’m trying to decide between the lesser of two evils here, as you have Ottawa who’s been bad for most of the year, especially on the road, against a Pittsburgh team that’s lost 6 straight and is probably due. However, I thought Pittsburgh’s been due for a couple of games now, and backing the Pens has blown up in my face in winnable situations. Ottawa has no expectations left to live up to and like it or not, they’re playing better hockey than the Penguins are right now. I wouldn’t be surprised with a bounce back win for Pittsburgh here, but I think if it happens it’s a close game, so I’ll take Ottawa on the puck line, starting out with a goal as the price isn’t bad for a team to start out with a goal in hand.
