6-1 Blues
GWG: Vladimir Tarasenko

There is a scenario where a rested Blues team loses at home to a Senators team on a back-to-back but I can't think of it. This is as much of a schedule loss that you can get in the NHL.

2-1 Senators
GWG: Mika Zibanejad

Another tough matchup, especially given the scenario, but everytime I think it’s a sure loss, the team wins. Hammond has enough in him to give the Sens a shootout win.

5-2 Blues
GWG: Vladimir Tarasenko

The Blues should eat a tired Sens team alive.

5-4 Blues
GWG: Kevin Shattenkirk

Sooooooo the Senators haven’t scored in 2 straight games and they’re heading into St. Louis to try and break the streak! Well good luck to them and Godspeed to everyone tonight. It’s already bad enough that it’s Monday.

4-3 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

The Sens put together a third period comeback to beat the Blues in a high-scoring game. Powerplays turn out to be the key in this one.

Record: 21-18, 26 Points
2 Exact Scores, 3 Game Winning Goals

3-0 Blues
GWG: Kevin Shattenkirk

The Blues are one of the best teams in the league and the Sens just can't find a way through. Shattenkirk sneaks one through a screen for the winner early in the second.

4-1 Blues
GWG: Vladimir Tarasenko

The Blues will dominate from start to finish and Ottawa will have no answers. This will be one of the toughest games of the year to watch as a Sens fan.

Record: 18-21, 19 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Senators
GWG: Bobby Ryan

Despite having to go through the gauntlet of Chicago and St. Louis on back to back nights, I think Ottawa can surprise with a win. They might not deserve it, but they'll pull out a W.
