Game 42 Prediction Panel: Boston Bruins @ Ottawa Senators

Rematch or revenge? (rematch please)

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.

3-2 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

Brad Marchand returns from suspension and Mark Borowiecki resists the urge to put the Senators in a hole. On the hockey front, Mike Hoffman scores yet again in a well earned Ottawa victory.

Record: 22-19, 26 Points
0 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

4-3 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

I think the Sens will be energized for this game, with a rough n’ tumble first period after Marchand comes back from his suspension.

Record: 21-20, 24 Points
3 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

5-3 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

The Sens continue their strong play from the last game, and roll over a tired Bruins squad.

Record: 18-23, 21 Points
3 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Bruins
GWG: Patrice Bergeron

There are a couple things I really, truly, honestly hope don’t happen. I hope Mark Borowiecki doesn’t hit Brad Marchand really, really hard. I also hope he doesn’t fight him and punch him in the face with all of his might. These are things I really don’t want to happen. Seriously. *Turn to camera* *Wink*

Record: 23-18, 29 Points
2 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

4-3 Senators
GWG: Zack Smith

In a penalty-filled game, the "war" will continue between these two clubs with the Sens coming out on top. Expect Marchand to be getting a lot of attention.

Record: 22-19, 27 Points
2 Exact Scores, 3 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

This game is Erik Karlsson at the height of his powers: the rearguard plays 28 mins and pots three points. He's easily the best player on the ice.

Record: 23-18, 25 Points
0 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Bruins
GWG: Brad Marchand

Ottawa will spend the game chasing Marchand for revenge, and Marchand will spend the game frustrating Sens fans by getting scoring chances.

Record: 18-23, 19 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Bruins
GWG: Patrice Bergeron

The Bruins outplayed the Senators in the first two matchups, and I'm expecting that to continue. Although Ottawa needs the win, I think Boston is the better team.

Record: 20-21, 26 Points
2 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals
