Game 44 Prediction Panel: Ottawa Senators @ Anaheim Ducks

No way this California road trip can be better than last year's.... can it?

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 Ducks
GWG: Jakob Silfverberg

The California trip helped save the season last year and this year it is a pretty bad division. I think the Senators lose in a shootout with our good friend Jacke scoring the deciding goal.

Record: 24-19, 28 Points
0 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

4-1 Ducks
GWG: Carl Hagelin

Despite their record, the Ducks are a ridiculously strong possession team. Although the Senators magic last season started in California last year, I don’t think they get off to a good start.

Record: 22-21, 25 Points
3 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

1-0 Senators
GWG: Bobby Ryan

The Ducks can't score, the Sens can't score (lately), and it's a late game for most of the Sens fanbase. This one is going to the shootout!

Record: 20-23, 23 Points
3 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals


4-2 Ducks
GWG: Chris Phillips (but OK, really Corey Perry)

Ah yes, the rematch of the 2006-07 Stanley Cup Fina- *Bursts into tears*

Record: 23-20, 29 Points
2 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

2-1 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

The Ducks just aren't the same Ducks that we've seen in previous years. The Sens will capitalize on a couple bad turnovers and come out on top in this one.

Record: 24-19, 29 Points
2 Exact Scores, 3 Game Winning Goals


3-2 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

The Sens come out ready for the Ducks and build a big lead before hanging on late against a hard-charging Ducks squad.

Record: 24-19, 26 Points
0 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals

3-0 Senators
GWG: Kyle Turris

Anaheim continues its futility by losing to the Sens a mere week after losing to the much worse Leafs

Record: 19-24, 20 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Senators
GWG: Shane Prince

For some reason, the Ducks just really don't have it this year. Considering their division is terrible, they should still make the playoffs, but this game may not be as hard as it has been in years past.

Record: 21-22, 27 Points
2 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals
