Game 16 Prediction Panel: Vancouver Canucks @ Ottawa Senators

Surprisingly optimistic.

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 way behind) here.

4-3 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

The Canucks are not playing great either and Ottawa will do just enough to pull this out thanks to big games from their top two lines.

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

2-0 Senators
GWG: Patrick Wiercioch

Hometown boys Turris + Wiercioch help Anderson and the Sens take this one against a Nucks team that isn’t really that good.

Record: 5-10, 6 Points
1 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

5-2 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

It's got to be a bounce-back game, right? Right??

Record: 7-8, 9 Points
2 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

5-4 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

When Mark Stone scores the game-winning goal tonight, remind yourselves that he was a healthy scratch just over a year ago. Enjoy the game!

Record: 8-7, 10 Points
1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-1 Senators
GWG: Kyle Turris

BC boy Kyle Turris has a big game with a pair of goals, putting the team on his back and leading the Sens to a big W at home.

Record: 8-7, 10 Points
1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

5-2 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

Ottawa's second line comes to play this game and Mike Hoffman gets the winner to cap off a three point night.

Record: 9-6, 10 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-3 Canucks
GWG: Radim Vrbata

The Canucks are hard to predict. They're old, so they could collapse at any point, but the older players still seem to be holding their own. I predict their strong veterans and youthful depth will be too much for Ottawa to handle.

Record: 9-6, 10 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

5-3 Canucks
GWG: Jared McCann

As a Senators fan in Vancouver, I know too well that the Canucks have had our number for years, even in Ottawa. Last year Ottawa was able to win on home ice, but every time they meet I expect a loss. McCann has been fantastic for them and I think he'll have a big game.

Record: 9-6, 12 Points
1 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals
