Analysis
The Ottawa Senators were in San Jose a couple of nights back and the two went Over. The Sens have gone high in five of their last six against Pacific Division teams, and now tonight they face another with one of the highest-scoring teams in the league, the Vegas Golden Knights. Vegas, which has gone high in four straight against the Atlantic Division, returns home after an impressive come-from-behind 5-4 win in Vancouver and should be fired up considering it's 3-1-0 when returning from a road trip, be it one game or five that were played on the highway. Since a 5-4 win in Ottawa on Nov. 3, the Golden Knights rank second in the league with 4.22 goals per game. They've also allowed 3.56 goals per game in that same span, as the goaltending has fallen off a bit since a stringent start. The Golden Knights, who have ended north of the total in seven of their last nine, have allowed four or more goals in six of their last nine games. Ottawa, meanwhile, has allowed four or more goals in 11 of its 18 games this season. I can see the Knights sending fans into Thanksgiving after scoring 6 goals in a win, it's a matter of whether or not the Sens score 2 or 5. Nevertheless, this one goes high.
