Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports

Adnan
4-3 Maple Leafs
GWG: James van Riemsdyk

Ottawa loses 4-3 in Toronto because I can't remember the last time they won in Toronto and because I can't predict a 3-0 week. There is also a chance that Craig Anderson might get the night off. One or both of Jared Cowen and Mark Borowiecki will be terrible in this game.

Record: 1-0, 1 Point

Ary
4-2 Maple Leafs
GWG: William Nylander

The Toronto game seems destined for a loss. National TV? Saturday Night? At the ACC? Rookies playing for ice-time? Nylander, who I think sticks with the Leafs, gets the winner here.

4-3 Maple Leafs
GWG: Nazem Kadri

Ottawa hasn't won in Toronto since 2011-12, and I don't see that happening tonight. Sens will carry the play, but Babcock found Carlyle's stash of horse shoes.

Callum
5-1 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

There are no playoff implications and the Leafs are looking like hot garbage (as per usual), so I'm not worried too much. 2-0, ho-hum.

4-1 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

The Leafs are starting the tank earlier than ever this year. Sens will come in and take an easy 2 points from their Ontario foes.

3-2 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

Sens mostly carry the play but James Reimer is up to his usual tricks against the Sens and keeps the Buds in it.

Richard
3-1 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

Ottawa beats Toronto 3-1, on a two goal effort from Mark Stone which includes our game winner. Babcock won’t have worked enough magic with the Leafs just yet for them to put in a consistent effort under a new system.

Ross
5-2 Senators
GWG: Bobby Ryan

The Leafs have a habit of frustrating the Sens, but I think this game will be different. For one, they aren't playing in Ottawa, so the crowd won't care who wins (Hey-oh!). Plus this year's Buds were hand-picked to be TERRIBLE.

Trevor
5-4 Maple Leafs
GWG: Tyler Bozak

It seems like Ottawa can never just get an easy win against Toronto, especially on the road. This game just screams painful overtime loss after having a lead, although I may still be affected from last years games. Bonus prediction: Erik Karlsson gets heavily criticized for a defensive lapse.
