NHL Network Rout - Rickenbach NHL Rotation #63 Saturday 8* OVER the total in Winnipeg Jets vs Ottawa Senators @ 2:05 ET - Jets could be lacking in defensive intensity here for a non-conference game against one of the Eastern Conference's worst teams. This is particularly true after Winnipeg just knocked off divisional foe (and Stanley Cup Champion) St Louis on Thursday night. Since this is an early Saturday game following a Thursday night road game, the Jets are alternating goalies and going back to Lauren Brossoit for this one. Though he had a strong start in his most recent outing, Brossoit entered that one having allowed an average of 5 goals per start in his last 3 starts. The Senators are off a dismal performance at home against the Avalanche and will be ready to test Brossoit early and often in this one. The issue for Ottawa is their own goalie situation as they continue to be without Anders Nilsson and then lost Chris Driedger to injury. Nilsson was their #1 and now Marcus Hogberg is likely getting this start. Hogberg has allowed 4 goals in 2 of his last 3 starts and the Jets enter this one off a game in which they scored 4 goals and that was on the road. In their most recent home game they scored 5 goals. Look for plenty of scoring in this one as the Sens catch the Jets at the right time for an upset but I expect the host will answer them goal for goal in this one which sends it flying over the total. 8* OVER the total in Winnipeg
