Who takes the first of the home and home?

Remember to put your predictions in the comments to this post by the scheduled start time for it to count as an entry in our prediction contest! You can read the full rules on that here, and see the results and all of the entries (might both be a bit behind) here.

3-2 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

The Senators head to the road for the first time in two weeks and win consecutive games. We are all left confounded where this was recently.

Record: 4-5, 4 Points
0 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

2-1 Senators
GWG: Milan Michalek

This a really tightly fought game. Detroit’s goaltending is fantastic, but Ottawa, playing Craig Anderson for the first half of this back-to-back, is up to the task and win off a Milan Michalek PP marker.

Record: 2-7, 3 Points
1 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Red Wings
GWG: Justin Abdelkader

Home and home favours the home team, and Detroit is rarely an easy destination for Ottawa.

Record: 4-5, 6 Points
2 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

5-3 Red Wings
GWG: Dylan Larkin

Remember that Canadian show "What's with Andy?" where this teenage kid would go around pranking everyone and it usually ended up with the principal yelling "LARKIN" at the top of his lungs? Well Dylan Larkin is that kid and Sens fans are the school's principal tonight.

Record: 5-4, 7 Points
1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-3 Red Wings
GWG: Gustav Nyquist

Hopefully we don't have to see a painful repeat of Nyquist skating around the Sens zone for 35 seconds before potting the OT winner.

Record: 5-4, 7 Points
1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

Ottawa takes advantage of some more strong play from their top line and walk away with the full two points. It's a Mark a Stone instant classic as the big winger puts up a goal and two assists.

Record: 7-2, 8 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals


No Pick Submitted.

Record: 4-5, 4 Points

4-2 Red Wings
GWG: Justin Abdelkader

Ottawa continues to look weak of late, getting out-shot, out-chanced, and ultimately out-scored in a game in which the scoreline doesn't show how badly Ottawa was outplayed.

Record: 6-3, 6 Points
0 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Senators
GWG: Patrick Wiercioch

The Red Wings have not been a good possession team so far, and Ottawa is able to generally limit Detroit to not many scoring chances. It'll still be a close game, but I'm expecting the underlying numbers to look good for the Senators.

Record: 3-6, 4 Points
