4-2 Rangers
GWG: Rick Nash

Hard to pick the Senators to win this one. But hey it is hockey and bad teams win at times.

Record: 29-19, 33 Points
0 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

3-1 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

Sens get back on a winning track against a Rangers team that many were touting at the start of the year, but were undergoing the same structural problems as the Senators (high PDO).

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

3-1 Senators
GWG: Bobby Ryan

After two lacklustre games, the Sens finally get some real fire going and are just too much for the Rangers.

Record: 23-25, 26 Points
3 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

5-4 Rangers
GWG: Derek Stepan

The only thing that really matters anymore is getting Karlsson points. I mean, yeah sure, try and make the playoffs, but let's work with realistic goals here.

Record: 26-22, 33 Points
3 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

5-3 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

The Sens break out of their slump in a big way. Stone pots a pair of goals to put an end to the cold streak. This game ends up being the start of a 10-game winning streak for the Sens. Let "The Streak 2.0" begin!

Record: 25-23, 30 Points
2 Exact Scores, 3 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

The Sens bounce back from some disappointing performances to secure an OT win in a tightly played affair

Record: 26-22, 28 Points
0 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals

5-2 Rangers
GWG: Rick Nash

Ottawa's poor play continues to catch up with them. The Rangers look dominant from the start, and Henrik Lundqvist can more than withstand the onslaught the Sens bring when the game's out of reach.

Record: 21-27, 22 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-1 Rangers
GWG: Chris Kreider

The Rangers seem like the easy pick here, and I'll go with the safe route. Although they haven't been a great possession team, the Rangers have a much better lineup on paper. Expect Henrik Lundqvist to be phenomenal as usual.

Record: 22-26, 28 Points
2 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals
