The Ottawa Senators wrap up a tough four-game road trip on Tuesday night hoping for it to not be winless as they play the second of a back-to-back at the Philadelphia Flyers.

Senators vs Flyers Betting Analysis

The last time Ottawa played a second game in 24 hours or so it didn’t go well as it lost at Florida on Nov. 11, 5-1.

It’s the second of three meetings between the Senators and Flyers this season, with Ottawa returning to Philadelphia on March 11. On Oct. 10, the Senators lost to the visiting Flyers 7-4. Jakub Voracek was the easy call as the No. 1 star with two goals and three assists, while Scott Laughton had two goals. Calvin Pickard was in net.

Brady Tkachuk gave the Senators leads of 1-0 and 2-1 and was the No. 2 star with those two goals and an assist. Maxime Lajoie also had two goals and an assist for the Senators. Craig Anderson was peppered with 44 shots but allowed three goals in both the second and third periods.

Ottawa won its lone trip to Philadelphia last year, 4-3, in a shootout. Former Senator Mike Hoffman scored the only goal among the 12 players in the shootout. The Flyers were down 3-1 with just over five minutes left in regulation. Nolan Patrick tied it with just three seconds remaining. Anderson was in net for Ottawa.

The road team is 5-2 in the past seven meetings. The over is 4-0 in the previous four.

Ottawa Senators

The Senators dropped their fourth straight – all by two goals – 4-2 on Monday at the New York Rangers (who visit Ottawa on Thursday). Anderson gave up three goals on 32 shots and surely will take a seat here for Mike McKenna, who is 0-1-1 with a 5.41 GAA and .862 SV this year. He last played in relief of Anderson on Nov. 19 vs. Florida and allowed one goal on 10 shots.

Defenceman Mark Borowiecki (undisclosed) missed Monday’s game and will sit Tuesday. Mark Stone was in some question Monday after taking a puck to the face in Dallas on Friday but played and had both goals. Ottawa is 8-20 in its past 28 playing the second of a back-to-back.

Philadelphia Flyers

Philadelphia is off a 6-0 whitewashing in Toronto on Saturday, the Flyers fifth loss in their past six games – and GM Ron Hextall was fired Monday. They are really thin in net right now with No. 1 Brian Elliott and backup Michal Neuvirth both hurt. Pickard was pulled vs. the Leafs, with whom he played one game last season, after allowing four goals on six shots. Anthony Stolarz allowed two goals on 34 shots in relief. He’s only on the active roster because yet another goaltender, Alex Lyon, also is now hurt and has since been sent down.

Philadelphia has one of the top goalie prospects in the league in 20-year-old Carter Hart, who is from Sherwood Park, Alberta, but the team wants him to get a bit more seasoning in the AHL. The Flyers are 29th in GAA (3.57 gpg) and 30th on the PK (69.7 per cent). They are 1-7 in their past eight vs. Eastern Conference teams.
