Game 43 Prediction Panel: Ottawa Senators @ Washington Capitals

On the road again

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.

6-3 Capitals
GWG: Alex Ovechkin

The Capitals are the best team in the league. They are at home. They will have a few hours of extra rest compared to Ottawa with both teams on a back-to-back. Hopefully Erik Karlsson gets a point or two since Braden Holtby might be rested.

Record: 23-19, 27 Points
0 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

Doing the whole "reverse psychology" thing here and predicting that the Sens will outplay a much better team after Washington had to work hard to beat the Rangers on Saturday afternoon.

Record: 22-20, 25 Points
3 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

3-1 Capitals
GWG: Evgeny Kuznetsov

The Sens put up a good fight, but run out of steam before the high flying Caps.

3-2 Capitals
GWG: Evgeny Kuznetsov

Coming off a big OT win on Saturday night, the Sens come out a bit flat early on against Ovechkin & Friends.

Record: 23-19, 28 Points

2-1 Sens

GWG: Kyle Turris

Kyle Turris busts out of his slump in a big way with two goals and The Hamburglar is spectacular as the Sens steal one in Washington

Record: 24-18, 26 Points
0 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Capitals
GWG: Evgeny Kuznetsov

Ottawa can't hang with one of the top two or three teams in the league, but goaltending keeps it close.

Record: 18-24, 19 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-3 Capitals
GWG: Nicklas Backstrom

The Capitals are just such a good team, and there's no way I'm betting against them while playing Ottawa at home.
