I’m vacationing in Nashville this weekend, but when I saw this line today, I had to write about it!
The 1st Period ‘Over’ is:
- 7-3 in the last 10 Ottawa home games.
- 7-3 in the last 10 Philadelphia road games.
Ottawa has now scored a 1st period goal in 5 straight games and 6 of their last 7 home.
Tonight, they get to face Philadelphia on their 2nd night of a back-to-back (B2B). That means backup goaltender Martin Jones (7-11-3, 3.42 GAA, 0.900 SV%) will be in net.
I noticed that Jones performs better this year on the road than at home in all periods except the 1st. As a visitor, he’s allowing opponents to score a 1st period goal at a 75% clip (12 game sample).
