The Ottawa Senators are either heading home with the Eastern Conference Finals to prepare for, or head back to prepare for Game 7. The Senators are in a position to get back to a place they were last spotted in 2007.
With a win tonight, and a series win next round, the Sens will have their ticket back to the Stanley Cup Finals. In 2007, the Senators were dropped by the Anaheim Ducks, who are still alive at the moment, too. The Ducks are going to a seventh game, and after tonight it may very well be the same scenario for the Sens.
If the Senators watched any of the Capitals-Penguins Game 6 last night, they would have discovered that you just can’t show up and expect results. It was very un-Penguin like to lay an egg like they did, but they played disinterested and worn down.
The Capitals have been beating them down all series long, and the Penguins better find it in them or they’re finally going to concede a series to the Washington Capitals. We were fortunate to cash in on the Caps, and I think most of us are happy to see a Game 7 on Wednesday.
Are we going to see a Game 7 between the Senators and Rangers? We already have two Game 7’s, could we see a third added to the schedule? The odds would suggest so.
The Rangers enter as heavy favorites to win and bring this series back to Ottawa. Ottawa have yet to win in NYC this series. In fact, both teams have served home which is actually a rarity these days in the NHL. Get our Senators vs. Rangers Game 6 for free at The Sports Geek.
Ottawa Senators vs. N.Y. Rangers Game 6 Pick
The Rangers had a win right in front of them again, but just like Game 2, they threw away a late lead to lose in overtime. This series could have been over if it were not for their collapses. The 2017 NHL Playoffs have seen their fair share of collapses, none bigger than Edmonton blowing a 3-0 lead with 3 minutes remaining against the Ducks. They were on fire, which is going to lead to an exciting Game 7 later on Wednesday night.
The Senators and Rangers, notably Craig Anderson and Henrik Lundqvist, have taken turns playing good hockey. There’s been an average of 6.6 goals per game in this series. Both teams are equally responsible for allowing in too many goals. The only game that has gone UNDER in this series was in Game 1, as the Sens and Rangers went through a feeling out process.
With a total of 5 in Game 6, I think we should take a look at this game to go OVER the total on Tuesday night. I see the Rangers winning, but I don’t see much value in the price. We’ve gone 7-1 in May with our NHL Playoffs picks, let’s look for another winning pick on Tuesday.
PICK: OVER 5 (-115)
