Game 32 Prediction Panel: Ottawa Senators @ Washington Capitals

Back to the road for a game

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.

5-1 Capitals
GWG: Alex Ovechkin

Not only do the Capitals have a lot of offensive power, they have an elite goalie to go with it. Add a game on the road and this could be ugly for Ottawa.

Record: 17-14, 20 Points
0 Exact Scores, 3 Game Winning Goals

4-1 Capitals
GWG: Alex Ovechkin

Remember how we talked about the Rangers being the cream of the East a couple weeks ago? Well, the Capitals are ACTUALLY the cream of the East.

Record: 14-17, 16 Points
2 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

4-3 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

Feels like they always play a bit better in front of Hammond, who shows some rust but gets the W.

Record: 16-15, 18 Points
2 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Capitals
GWG: Evgeni Kuznetsov

Braden Holtby seems like a top 3 goalie in the league right now. So that doesn't really bode well for the Sens. Wait, maybe they'll get the backup! Actually, no, that would be worse.

Record: 16-15, 20 Points
2 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Capitals
GWG: John Carlson

A subpar effort against Ovechkin & Friends hands the Caps the win as the Sens look very out-matched in this one.

Record: 16-15, 20 Points
2 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Capitals
GWG: Evgeni Kuznetsov

The Caps are high-powered team on a mission but the Sens are able to hang in there thanks to strong goalie play before Kuznetsov gets a late winner.

Record: 18-13, 19 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-3 Capitals
GWG: Evgeni Kuznetsov

I think it'll be close, but with the Caps' firepower eventually proving too much for the Sens to handle.

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

6-5 Senators
GWG: Mika Zibanejad

Remember that 8-6 loss to the Capitals years ago? I feel like this is going to be another one of those insanely high-event games where everything goes in. Ottawa is due for one of these games every so often, as we saw against the Stars and Predators not too long ago.

Record: 15-16, 19 Points
