5-3 Blackhawks
GWG: Patrick Kane

They are close in the standings but Chicago is a much better team. Could Ottawa ride the percentages? Sure. But you wouldn't want to bet on it.

Record: 12-12, 13 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

2-0 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

Hawks dance all night, but Anderson is there at every turn.

5-4 Blackhawks
GWG: Artemi Panarin

Sens are the underdog on paper in this one for sure, but their games against the Hawks always feel wonky and extra-unpredictable. Roll the dice.

Record: 12-12, 14 Points
2 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

Callum
6-2 Blackhawks
GWG: Trevor Daley

Can you imagine if Erik Karlsson was on a team like Chicago? I mean, they already have, like, a top 15 defender in Duncan Keith (zing), but imagine Karlsson's production with All-Stars everywhere he looked.

Record: 13-11, 15 Points

Ian
4-3 Senators
GWG: Kyle Turris

The Blackhawks put up 40+ shots but the Sens somehow pull out a win at home with a pair of timely powerplay goals.

One of those nights where everything goes right. Sens roll the defending Cup champs who aren't ready to play

Ross
5-2 Senators
GWG: Zack Smith

Ottawa continues its recent streak of scoring a lot of goals against Central Division teams.

Record: 14-10, 15 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

Trevor
5-4 Blackhawks
GWG: Artemi Panarin

I think the Senators will be in this game for the whole night somehow, but the Blackhawks just have too much fire-power. How unfair is it that they get a guy like Panarin from the KHL and he's immediately a star? As if they need it.
