3-2 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

Ottawa raises its game tonight against their biggest rivals. Despite the Habs being one of the top teams in the league, the Senators hold their own with Erik Karlsson the deciding factor.

Record: 16-13, 18 Points
0 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals

2-0 Senators
GWG: Mika Zibanejad

#OttawaTypical game against the Habs, who without Carey Price, isn’t able to win a low-scoring game. Craig Anderson denies Max Pacioretty.

Record: 13-16, 15 Points
2 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Senators
GWG: Bobby Ryan

Might be predicting with my heart a little bit here, but the Habs haven't been getting the results lately either.

6-2 Senators
GWG: Jean-Gabriel Pageau

Ah yes, the classic Saturday matchup with the red, white and bloo bloo bloo.

Record: 16-13, 20 Points
2 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Senators
GWG: Jean-Gabriel Pageau

As usual, JG Pageau plays one of his best games against the Habs and picks up the game-winner on a great individual effort to kick off the third period.

Record: 15-14, 18 Points
2 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

3-0 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

The battle of the perennial Norris candidates plays out with Karlsson again coming out on top thanks to a first period power play goal that stands up as the winner.

Record: 17-12, 18 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

3-1 Senators
GWG: Cody Ceci

I think this will go about the same as the last time these teams met, except with Ottawa getting the win in regulation, and with an empty-netter sealing it.

Record: 15-14, 16 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-3 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

Ottawa usually brings their A game to the Bell Centre, and I have a good feeling about this one. Too bad we won't be able to make fun of Brendan Gallagher.

Record: 15-14, 19 Points
1 Exact Scores, 3 Game Winning Goals
