NHL Prediction: Vancouver Canucks vs Ottawa Senators on 25.01.2021 North America, on 26.01.2021 Europe
On the next game day of the NHL, Vancouver will face Ottawa. Who will prevail in equal opposition? Let’s find out.
Vancouver had a good start in the new season, beating Edmonton in the first match (5-3). But after that, the team suffered three defeats in a row, twice from Calgary (5-2 and 3-0), as well as in another meeting with the Oilers (5-2). The Canucks’ main problem is a weak defence, as evidenced by 13 goals conceded in three games. At home, the Canadians were able to break the series of defeats by beating Montreal (6-5 SO). Later, they failed to consolidate the success – the club again lost to the Canadiens (7-3 and 5-2).
Ottawa just started the new year with a confident victory over Toronto (5-3). It is worth noting the striker Tkachuk, who scored a goal and also gave two assists. However, the second time they failed to cope with the Maple Leafs, the Senators showed weak play in the offence, which led to a defeat with a score of 2-3. Now the Senators are on a losing streak of four matches. The team could not cope with Winnipeg three times. Only in the first meeting, Ottawa had a good chance to beat the Jets, but the Senators conceded a minute before the end, after which they lost in overtime (3-4).
Vancouver Canucks – Ottawa Senators prediction
Ottawa played terrible away last year, mostly scoring at home. But so far, the Senators have not been able to show a decent game even within their native walls. Vancouver also didn’t start the season well, but since the Canucks play on their own ice, they have a much better chance of winning.
