3-2 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

The Senators return home and beat the always awful Oilers. Mike Hoffman has a dominant game.

Record: 29-22, 33 Points
0 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

4-1 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

Hi again, Eric Gryba! Despite new management, the Oilers are still a questionable team and it’s mainly because of their defence. The Sens offence have a field day.

Record: 27-24, 32 Points
4 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

5-3 Oilers
GWG: Connor McDavid

We haven't hit bottom yet, and Edmonton played like a different (relatively better) team before McDavid went down - betting they show that trend again with him back.

Record: 25-26, 29 Points
3 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

Eric Gryba, that guy who is definitely better than Jared Cowen but was traded for a low round pick simply so Cowen could get more ice time, is back. How riveting.

Record: 27-24, 35 Points
3 Exact Scores, 5 Game Winning Goals

2-1 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

Taylor Hall puts the Oilers up early, but the Sens mount a third period comeback to win in a high-shooting affair.

Record: 26-25, 31 Points
2 Exact Scores, 3 Game Winning Goals

5-1 Senators
GWG: Bobby Ryan

The Sens dominate this one start to finish. The Oilers aren't very good.

Record: 27-24, 29 Points
0 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals

5-4 Oilers
GWG: Nail Yakupov

This will be embarrassing for the Sens, but they just won't be able to buy a save when they need it.

Record: 22-29, 23 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

5-1 Senators
GWG: Mika Zibanejad

The Oiler are inching closer to relevancy, but their defense is still atrocious. Ottawa has never had troubles scoring on them in the past.

Record: 24-27, 32 Points
3 Exact Scores, 5 Game Winning Goals
