Adnan
3-0 Rangers
GWG: Mats Zuccarello

The Senators get dominated in all aspects. Good Norwegian kid Mats Zuccarello's goal to open the scoring is all the Rangers will need.

Record: 8-8, 8 Points
0 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

Ary
4-1 Rangers
GWG: Chris Kreider

Sens start off slow in this afternoon start and never recover.

Record: 6-10, 7 Points
1 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

B_T
3-1 Rangers
GWG: Rick Nash

Early matinee, and the brick wall known as Henrik Lundqvist. The deck is stacked against for this one.

Record: 8-8, 10 Points
2 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

Callum
3-1 Rangers
GWG: Derek Stepan

An afternoon game against the New York Rangers? Yeah, I don’t think so.

Record: 9-7, 11 Points
1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

Ian
3-2 Senators
GWG: Bobby Ryan

Despite a slow start typical of a Sens afternoon game, they bounce back and Bobby rips home the game winner with a couple minutes to go in the third.

Record: 9-7, 11 Points
1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

3-0 Rangers
GWG: Rick Nash

Ottawa can't get by a stellar goaltending performance from Henrik Lundqvist and Rick Nash gets untracked for the Rangers with two goals.

Record: 10-6, 11 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

Ross
6-4 Senators
GWG: Mika Zibanejad

The Rangers' biggest strength is their goatlending (sic). So naturally I expect it to be a non-factor and for this to be a high-scoring game for the ages.

Record: 9-7, 10 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

Trevor
3-2 Senators
GWG: Bobby Ryan

Honestly there isn't too much reasoning behind this one, but I know that despite the Rangers being a very good team, Ottawa can compete with them. It'll be a close game with two great goaltenders, and I wouldn't be surprised to see this one go to overtime.

Record: 9-7, 12 Points
