5-4 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

This will be a fun game with multiple lead changes. Mike Hoffman hits the crossbar yet again but eventually he has the last laugh.

Record: 30-25, 34 Points
0 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

5-1 Senators
GWG: Jean-Gabriel Pageau

Pageau makes Patrick Roy curse out his team in French as the diminutive forward scores two goals in a rout of the Avalanche

Record: 28-27, 34 Points
5 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

6-4 Senators
GWG: Jean-Gabriel Pageau

This one is going to be a sloppy, sloppy gongshow for both teams.

Record: 27-28, 31 Points
3 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

2-1 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

Nathan MacKinnon has gotta be a top 20 player to watch. He’s 19 spots behind Erik Karlsson, but still.

Record: 29-26, 39 Points
4 Exact Scores, 6 Game Winning Goals

5-2 Senators
GWG: Jean-Gabriel Pageau

Pageau picks up another shorthanded goal to extend his league lead. The Sens come out firing for the win on the back end of a back-to-back.

Record: 28-27, 34 Points
2 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

5-2 Senators
GWG: Kyle Turris

Turris' presence will be felt thanks to a two point night and the Sens will roll the Avalanche.

Record: 29-26, 32 Points
0 Exact Scores, 3 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

The Avalanche are pretty bad, despite their recent surge. No way they beat the Sens, right?

Record: 25-30, 26 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-0 Avalanche
GWG: Gabriel Landeskog

I don't like Ottawa's chances here on the second half of a back to back, even if the Avalanche aren't exactly world-beaters.

Record: 26-29, 35 Points
3 Exact Scores, 6 Game Winning Goals
