Ottawa is coming off a game vs. Buffalo just last night.
The last time the Sens played Pittsburgh, they lost 2-1 in front of the home town crowd on January 27th.
Note that Ottawa has seen the total go "under" the number in four of its last five road games where the total is 5.5.
Pittsburgh is 8-5, and is coming off back to back 3-1 losses, including vs. New Jersey on the 10th.
Note that Pittsburgh has seen the total go "under" the number in three of four after a loss by 2 goals or more in its previous game.
I don't think there's any need to overanalyze this pick. The Sens come into this game with "heavy legs", and these two Eastern conference foes once again battle to a lower-scoring affair!
