Adnan
5-4 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

This will be a fun game with plenty of chances going both ways. In the end, Ottawa's top line is the difference

Record: 3-4, 3 Points
0 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

Ary
4-2 Senators
GWG: Alex Chiasson

I’ve actually been quite impressed with Chiasson’s speed recently, as he talked in the offseason about improving his explosiveness and we’ve seen that so far. The Yotes kids (Domi, Duclair) look really good, and OEL (who SHOULD be an Ottawa Senator instead of Jared Cowen) is always a threat. The Sens seem to do well against Mike Smith though, and he’s bound to fall back down to his below-average self eventually.

5-2 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

The rookie scoring cools down, and the Coyotes get shown to be the basement dweller we were all expecting this season.

Callum
7-6 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

Domi and Duclair will have hat tricks each, but as will Mark Stone and Erik Karlsson. Heck yeah.

Record: 4-3, 6 Points
1 Exact Score, 1 Game Winning Goal

Ian
5-3 Senators
GWG: Bobby Ryan

Bobby will find the back of the net with a pair of goals (maybe even a hat trick). It will be a close game, but the Sens will manage to hold off Arizona's young guns.

Record: 4-3, 6 Points

3-2 Senators
GWG: Jean-Gabriel Pageau

Senators carry the play but the kids shine for the Coyotes and a couple of highlight reel goals keep it close. Ottawa walks away with 2 pts but everyone realizes the future is bright in the desert.

Record: 6-1, 7 Points

Richard
5-2 Coyotes
GWG: Max Domi

An ugly game from the Sens who have a hard time putting together a consistent, emotional effort against this team.

Ross
4-3 Coyotes
GWG: Max Domi

I know we don't get bonus points for calling OT, but I see this one going all the way to the shootout. Then I predict Arizona winning it in a nail-biter

Trevor
5-3 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

This is another game that Ottawa should easily win. That doesn't mean it'll be a cake walk, but it would be hard to bet against Ottawa at home for this game. Youngsters Max Domi and Anthony Duclair will shine, but they don't have much else up front.
