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.

5-3 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

Lumbus is playing a little better but Ottawa continues to beat up on them. It is not quite the seven goal outburst as last time though.

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

4-1 Senators
GWG: Mika Zibanejad

The Sens don’t dominate the Jackets like last time, with one of the Sens four goals being an empty-netter, but they have enough in them to win. The second line, which is inconsistent sometimes, takes over.

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

3-2 Senators
GWG: Bobby Ryan

Not buying the "Blue Jackets are good now!" narrative that seems to be out there. They're better than the last time they faced the Sens, but they're still not good.

Record: 9-9, 11 Points
2 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

5-2 Senators
GWG: Kyle Turris

Time for Ottawa to take care of gimme games while they can. Deathcember is approaching quickly.

Record: 11-7, 13 Points
1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

5-2 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

The Sens have a killer second period and rock the Blue Jackets for 3 goals to take the lead and not look back, Hoffman snipes a goal off the rush for the GWG.

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

3-2 Senators
GWG: Bobby Ryan

Bobby Ryan continues his hot play and nets the game winner late in the third period of a game the Sens deserve to win through and through.

Record: 11-7, 12 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Senators
GWG: Jean-Gabriel Pageau

The Jackets have actually won games since Torts took over. That doesn't mean they've been good.

Record: 10-8, 11 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

5-2 Senators
GWG: Patrick Wiercioch

If Ottawa beat the Jackets 7-3 on the road you'd think it'll be easier at home right? Well, Ottawa should win this one, and honestly it's embarrassing if they don't.

Record: 10-8, 13 Points
1 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals
