Adnan
6-2 Capitals
GWG: Alex Ovechkin

The Caps were blown out against Pittsburgh and they are going to take it out on poor Ottawa.

Record: 39-34, 44 Points
1 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

Ary
4-1 Capitals
GWG: Evgeny Kuznetsov

I think this game ends up tighter than the scoreline indicates, but the Sens just don’t have the chops to hang with the eventual President’s Trophy winners. [holy crap look at where Kuzya is in league scoring]

Record: 36-37, 43 Points
6 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

Was banking on a down game for the Caps but that happened in their last game, so...

Record: 37-36, 42 Points
3 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals

Callum
4-2 Capitals
GWG: Alex Ovechkin

Great to see Washington taking advantage of a generational talent like Alexander Ovechkin. I wish Ottawa had that opportunity. Wait a second.

Record: 39-34, 51 Points
6 Exact Scores, 6 Game Winning Goals

Ian
4-3 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

Sens win an OT thriller. They manage to keep Ovechkin off the scoreboard somehow and squeak out a win.

Record: 36-37, 43 Points
3 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

5-3 Capitals
GWG: Marcus Johansson

I used to rule the world. Seas would rise when I gave the word. Now in the morning I sleep alone. Sweep the streets I used to own.

Ross
5-4 Capitals
GWG: Alex Ovechkin

This will be one of those back-and-forth games, where the Caps dominate but the Sens answer every Caps goal right afterward. Washington will eventually win it in overtime when the Sens don't get a chance to respond.

Record: 33-40, 35 Points
1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

Trevor
5-4 Capitals
GWG: T.J. Oshie

I don't care if this is at home, there's no way I'm not picking the Capitals here. They've been phenomenal this year.

Record: 33-40, 44 Points
5 Exact Scores, 6 Game Winning Goals
