3-2 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

The Senators head into Christmas with a nice win. The Senators top two lines and top two pairings will all play well and that is usually enough.

Record: 19-15, 22 Points
0 Exact Scores, 3 Game Winning Goals

4-1 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

The Senators enter the break on a strong note with a 4 goal effort against a tired Panthers squad.

Record: 17-17, 19 Points
2 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Senators
GWG: Ryan Dzingel

Sens go in to the Christmas break on a high note. Dzingel makes it in and gets the winner, just for the punny headlines.

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

3-2 Panthers
GWG: Jonathan Huberdeau

When’s the last time the Sens and Panthers played a legitimately fun game to watch. It’s like playing the New Jersey Devils. I might fall asleep during this one.

Record: 18-16, 22 Points
2 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Senators
GWG: Jean-Gabriel Pageau

The Sens play a quality 60 minutes to head into the Christmas break on a high note. JG Pageau pots the game winner on a shorthanded two-on-one.

Record: 19-15, 24 Points
2 Exact Scores, 3 Game Winning Goals

5-0 Senators
GWG: Bobby Ryan

The Sens play their most complete game of the season and punish a sloppy Panthers squad.

Record: 21-13, 22 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

5-2 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

- Knock knock!
-- Who's there?
- My panther
-- My panther who?
- My panther falling down!
Both a great joke for the under-6 crowd, and a description of Florida's season thus far. (Full disclaimer: I'm recycling this joke from Callum's prediction panel from last year. I'm not even a little ashamed.)

Record: 18-16, 19 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

5-1 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

The Sens are able to repeat their performance against the Panthers from a few weeks ago, but this time they're even better. Plus Mark Borowiecki (hopefully) won't be on the first line so things can't go any worse.

Record: 16-18, 20 Points
1 Exact Scores, 3 Game Winning Goals
