The Ottawa Senators head to Bell Centre in Montreal to face off against the Montreal Canadiens in the second installment of their two-game NHL Atlantic Division series on Tuesday, January 31st. The Senators enter the matchup after splitting their last 46 regulation games, which includes three overtime losses, and hold a 9-12-2 road record for the season, good for second-to-last in the Atlantic Division. However, after taking game one of the series 5-0, the Senators look to secure their third straight win with another victory over the Canadiens. In the win, Ottawa shut out Montreal in all three periods while notching five goals, with goaltender Anton Forsberg stopping all 28 shots faced for a 1.000 save percentage. Right-winger Claude Giroux paced the Senators with two goals and one assist.

Despite their efforts, the Senators are out of playoff contention this season. Despite this, the team has several key contributors, led by left-winger Brady Tkachuk. Tkachuk has established himself as the team’s top player, posting 49 points, 30 assists, and 68 penalty minutes, while adding 19 goals. He also dished out 15 of his 30 assists while his team was on the power play. Fellow left-winger Tim Stutzle also made his mark, leading the team with 20 goals, seven of which came on the power play.

  • Ottawa is 4-1 SU in their last 5 games over the Canadiens.
  • The Ottawa Senators are 3-6 SU in their last 9 games on the road.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 6 of Ottawa’s last 9 games on the road against Montreal.

The Montreal Canadiens aim to level the two-game series against Ottawa when they return to Bell Centre for Tuesday’s Atlantic Division clash. Montreal finds themselves at the bottom of the division with a 20-26-4 record, including an 11-13-1 mark on home ice. The Canadiens are looking to snap a three-game losing streak, which includes the recent 5-0 shutout defeat in Ottawa. Over their past ten games, Montreal has posted a 6-4 record. The Canadiens suffered a significant blow last week when top scorer Cole Caufield was ruled out for the rest of the season with a shoulder injury.

Montreal’s roster has been depleted with numerous key players on the injured reserve list, including Slafkovsky, Gallagher, Monohan, Price, Armia, Evans, Guhle, and Drouin. Center Nick Suzuki remains the standout player for Montreal this season with 16 goals, 22 assists, and 38 points in 50 games. Center Kirby Dach steps up to support Suzuki, recording 10 goals, 22 assists, and 32 points as he fills the void left by Caufield.
