5-2 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

The Senators finally give some fans all that they want. That is to beat the Maple Leafs in a tough road game in Kanata. As always, Mike Hoffman is great and Erik Karlsson is also great.

Record: 29-23, 33 Points
0 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Maple Leafs
GWG: Nazem Kadri

Saturday night against a bottom-five Leafs squad? You just know the Senators are going to lose. (as a Sens fan in Toronto, I’ve been scarred from these games too many times)

Record: 27-25, 32 Points
4 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

The Sens will deserve this one but goalie play will be the difference: the Leafs get a great performance from theirs, and the Sens do not

Record: 27-25, 29 Points

GWG: Mike Hoffman

Toronto's done trying for the season. Ottawa takes it in a walk.

0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Maple Leafs
GWG: Joffrey Lupul
