The Ottawa Senators visit one of the most dominant home teams in the NHL tonight, the Florida Panthers.

Ottawa Senators vs Florida Panthers Prediction: Panthers Look To Continue Red Hot Home Play

Tonight's matchup between the Ottawa Senators and Florida Panthers marks the 2nd meeting of the season between these two clubs. The first meeting saw the Senators pull off a shocking 8-2 win in Florida on December 14.

Ottawa has only won three of their past 10 games, averaging a minuscule 1.9 goals per game in that span. They will get an offensive boost tonight as center Josh Norris makes his return to the lineup. Norris has not played since January 27 but is still leading the team with 18 goals. Norris had two goals and an assist in the 8-2 win vs Florida earlier in the season. The Panthers have, uncharacteristically, lost their last three home games, and have been outscored 16-10. The losses have come to Nashville, Columbus, and Edmonton. The Cats will look to right the ship as they have two more games remaining on this five-game homestand. On the road this season, the Senators are averaging 2.79 goals per game, better than their 2.46 at home, and their power play is second-worst at 12.7%. Ottawa allows 3.42 goals per game on the road and their penalty kill is 79%. Five on five, on the road, the Sens have scored a respectable 51 goals, which is 14th in the league, and have allowed 52 goals, also 14th. The Senators have generated the second-fewest high danger scoring chances on the road and have given up the ninth-fewest. All respectable numbers but remember who they are up against tonight.

The Panthers average a league-high 4.59 goals per game at home, this is on a mediocre power play that sits at 22.8%. The Cats give up their share at home as they average 3.00 goals against per game, and their home penalty kill is bottom ten at 75.6%. Their home splits in five-on-five situations at home are astounding. The Cats have scored 92 five on five goals on home ice, best in the league by a 16 goal margin.

They have also given up 62 five on five home goals, eighth most in the league. Florida leads the league with 368 high danger scoring chances at home and also leads the league with 296 high danger scoring chances against. With Panthers are off three straight home losses, looking to avenge an 8-2 previous loss to the Sens and Ottawa getting their leading goal scorer back, I expect a plethora of goals tonight in Sunrise.
