6-2 Lightning
GWG: Steven Stamkos

Tampa Bay has not had a great season to date but it is still tough to pick Ottawa on the road here. The Lightning have a much better roster on paper.

Record: 15-13, 17 Points
0 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals

5-1 Lightning
GWG: Vladislav Namestnikov

The Lightning have been bottled up offensively for a big chunk of the season, but the Sens don’t nearly have the defensive talent that many other Eastern conference teams have. Erik Condra gets a point ;)

5-2 Lightning
GWG: Steven Stamkos

The might just be me being pessimistic, but I bet this is the game the Lightning snap out of their scoring drought

4-1 Lightning
GWG: Steven Stamkos

Remember that guy Erik Condra? He was pretty cool. Too bad he unfairly asked for 5 million dollars from the Sens. Way too expensive.

3-2 Senators
GWG: Bobby Ryan

The Sens do their best to keep Stamkos at bay, but he still finds a way to pot a pair of goals. Luckily the Sens are able to shut down the rest of the Lightning and come out of Tampa with a big two points.

3-2 Lightning
GWG: Erik Condra

Condra comes back to bite his olde team and gets the game winner on a breakaway he shockingly converts

5-4 Senators
GWG: Mika Zibanejad

I foresee the Lightning getting a disappointing game in goal, allowing Ottawa to steal the win in extra time.

6-2 Lightning
GWG: Valtteri Filppula

Tampa Bay has been a huge disappointment thus far, and they're bound to explode some time. No better team to do it against than Ottawa.
