Boston Bruins Form
The Bruins have been nothing short of sensational so far this season, and they are already looking every inch like a potential Stanley Cup champion.
They appear to have learned from their tough lessons from the Playoffs last season, and that has been highlighted in their recent form.
They have won their last four against high-quality opposition. During that run, they have overcome the Maple Leafs, Rangers and Sharks.
Bruins also beat the reigning Stanley Cup champions – the St Louis Blues. Their most recent outing was against the Sharks, and it was a comfortable 5-1 success in front of their home fans in Boston.
All the damage was done in the first two periods as they scored twice in the first and three in the second. David Krejci, Chris Wagner, Brandon Caro, Charlie Coyle and David Pastrnak all scored in that win.
Tuuka Rask had a fairly quiet evening as he only needs to make 17 saves in the win. It could be more of the same in this fixture.
Ottawa Senators Form
The Senators have endured the polar opposite opening to their campaign as they have only won three of their eleven NHL games this season.
They have lost on seven occasions already. Scoring has been their biggest problem to this point as they have only scored 29 goals in those eleven fixtures, and that is the leagues-lowest return to this point.
Their recent form has actually shown a little promise as they have won twice in their last four, and three of their last four.
Their victories have come against the Red Wings, and most recently, the Sharks. That win over the Sharks was their best performance of the season to date, as they won 5-2 and scored at least once in every period.
Nick Paul scored a brace in that win, while Brady Tkachuk, Connor Brown and Anthony Duclair also got on the scoresheet.
They will need to play to this level again if they are to have any chance against the Bruins.
Ottawa Senators vs Boston Bruins Head-to-Head

Ottawa Senators vs Boston Bruins Predictions
The last performance of the Senators may have cast a little doubt into the minds of gamblers for this match.
However, it remains incredibly unlikely that they will be able to overcome the Boston Bruins, who have been firing on all cylinders this season.
