Sens played the right way on Saturday. If they can do it again, this should be a win.

4-2 Red Wings
GWG: Justin Abdelkader

Well, we made fun of him for the past week, and now in true Hockey God fashion, it’s going to come back and haunt us. Good job, Sens Twitter. Great effort.

1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Senators
GWG: Kyle Turris

The Sens take it to the Wings, giving up a pair of third period goals to make it a close game, but the Sens hold on for the W.

Record: 9-8, 11 Points
1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-1 Senators
GWG: Patrick Wiercioch

Ottawa is better start to finish, Wiercioch blasts one home midway through the second and the Sens cruise.

Record: 11-6, 12 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-0 Red Wings
GWG: Justin Abdelkader

This game will look horrendous for Ottawa from start to two-minutes-from-the-end, when they take a bunch of shots but can't even score a moral victory.

Record: 9-8, 10 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-1 Red Wings
GWG: Pavel Datsyuk

In his 3rd game back, the magic man Datsyuk proves to be too much for Ottawa. The Senators were terrible last time at home against Detroit, and I'm expecting there to be lots of action in Ottawa's zone.

Record: 9-8, 12 Points
