Ottawa Senators (-320) at Buffalo Sabres (+260)

The Senators have won three in a row overall and two of three from the Sabres this season. Ottawa forward Mika Zibanejad has scored in consecutive games. Ottawa forward Zach Smith (undsicolsed injury) is an uncertain starter. Bufallo goalie Robin Lehner (ankle) is questionable. Defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo (lower body injury) is a doubtful starter. Forward Marcus Foligno has goals in back-to-back games.

Pick: The Senators (-320)

The Predators may give back-up goalie Carter Hutton a rare start. Nashville's line of Ryan Johansen, James Neal and Calle Jarnkrok has 11 points in the last two games. Predators are 5-1-2 in theis last eight and 11-1-5 in their last 17. The Capitals are the first team to clinch a playoff berth. Alexander Ovechkin scored in the last game to end a five-game drought.
