Game 12 Prediction Panel: Ottawa Senators @ Montreal Canadiens

Senators have a second chance at beating Condon

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.

3-1 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

Because screw the Habs. If I keep saying Hoffman will be back, eventually he has to right?

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

4-2 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

The Sens always seem to play really well against the Habs. I’ve factored in the two Max Pacioretty goals already, but I think that’ll be all that the Habs get. Meanwhile, Erik Karlsson silences his haters with a strong game.

Record: 4-7, 5 Points
1 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

Condon is no Price, so no Stone, no problem. Hoffman and Lazar back in the lineup provide the necessary boost, and the team in general has been better on the road.

Record: 4-7, 6 Points
2 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

5-3 Senators
GWG: Milan Michalek

If Carey Price is out and Mike Hoffman is in, I don’t see any reason for a Senators loss. Get the automobiles and lighter fluid ready!

Record: 6-5, 8 Points
1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

Sens come in to Montreal's barn and steal two points from the Habs while getting outshot for a change of pace.

Record: 5-6, 7 Points
1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

MTL is a paper tiger and without Carey Prife Ottawa's the better team. Sens roll in a game that's not as close as the score would indicate.

Record: 8-3, 9 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals


No Pick Submitted.

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

5-2 Senators
GWG: Kyle Turris

Remember how the Hamburglar's ridiculous run started in a nothing game against the Habs? Ottawa has this weird ability to get up for some games against Montreal, and I predict this to be one of them.

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

4-3 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

Ottawa will take revenge for their previous loss to the Canadiens, and Karlsson will finally get a big goal this season. There's no way they are going to let Montreal win two straight games against them.

Record: 5-6, 8 Points
1 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals
