3-1 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

Hopefully Jared Cowen and Mark Borowiecki are not a pairing any more by the time this game comes around.

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

4-1 Senators
GWG: Shane Prince

The Sens make this a winning week by taking advantage of a meh Canes team that needs 1-2 more years to build themselves back into playoff contention.

Record: 5-8, 6 Points
1 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

2-1 Hurricanes
GWG: Jeff Skinner

The Sens always have trouble scoring in Carolina, and I don't think Hammond is up to the shutout tonight.

Record: 6-7, 8 Points
2 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

2-0 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

The Senators always seem to have tight, low scoring games with the Hurricanes. It’s so weird. Like the whole Buffalo thing.

Record: 8-5, 10 Points
1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

5-1 Senators
GWG: Kyle Turris

Sens fill the net on "Point Night" in Carolina and the shutout bid would fall just short on a third period goal by the Canes.

Record: 7-6, 9 Points
1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-3 Senators
GWG: Kyle Turris

Carolina is a good team with questionable goaltending. The 'Canes will be the better team but Ottawa will get solid goalie play and win the day.

Record: 9-4, 10 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals


No Pick Submitted.

Record: 4-9, 4 Points
0 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Hurricanes
GWG: Noah Hanifin

This, like the games against the Devils and Coyotes, is a near-guaranteed win. Therefore, I predict Ottawa to look flat from start to finish. Look for young Hanifin to get his first NHL goal, because why not?

Record: 8-5, 9 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

5-1 Hurricanes
GWG: Jeff Skinner

I'll be honest, I had to look up the Hurricanes roster to see who was on it. Skinner seems like a good candidate to score, and because they aren't a very good team, I'm definitely expecting a terrible loss. Ottawa did this recently vs. the Coyotes, and I wouldn't be surprised to see another poor performance against a non-playoff team.
