Sweep or split?

5-1 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

Ottawa uses Mike Hoffman's return to overwhelm a poor Red Wings team. Craig Anderson also plays a solid game and Erik Karlsson scores the game winner.

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

5-2 Red Wings
GWG: Tomas Jurco

Detroit comes back with a really strong game and is able to down the Sens. Both Howard/Mrazek are really good goalies, with less of a drop-off between Ottawa’s #1 and #2. This seals Ottawa's fate.

Record: 3-7, 4 Points
1 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

3-1 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

Just like I said for yesterday's game - home and home favours the home team. Moreso on the back half. Fresh Andy vs tired Howard or fresh Mrazek helps too.

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

4-0 Red Wings
GWG: Henrik Zetterberg

Hey, remember when Daniel Alfredsson played for the Red Wings? That was horrible. I think this game is going to be something like that.

Record: 5-5, 6 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-1 Senators
GWG: Kyle Turris

The Sens will win the back end of the home and home series with Detroit. The game will also feature many camera shots of Alfie up in the box and HNIC forcing us to remember that he once left us.

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

3-2 Senators
GWG: Mika Zibanejad

Ottawa continues its recent hot streak, and the second line finally (finally!) gets really untracked. Zibby is a force and pots two goals, including the game winner.

Record: 8-2, 9 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals


No Pick Submitted.

6-3 Red Wings
GWG: Niklas Kronwall

Ottawa gets out to an early lead, but can't keep it against a Detroit team that's playing much better right now. At least Alfie doesn't play for them anymore, right?

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

5-3 Red Wings
GWG: Dylan Larkin

No matter which team I was going to pick in the first half of this back to back, I was going to choose the opposite for the second game. Home and away series usually end in splits, so that's what I'm going with here.

Record: 4-6, 5 Points
