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.

7-2 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

The Senators are not a great team but Lumbus under Torts are special bad. The only scare for the Senators is the first time the Lumbus cannon sounds.

Record: 30-26, 34 Points
0 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Senators
GWG: Jean-Gabriel Pageau

Every other team is running over the Blue Jackets, so it’s only natural that the Sens have a tough time.

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

5-2 Senators
GWG: Zack Smith

This is a should-win for the Sens. Lumbus is a bad team that is down a few goaltenders.

Record: 27-29, 31 Points
3 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-3 Blue Jackets
GWG: Nick Foligno

Remember when Robin Lehner broke his stick over his leg Bo-Jackson-style after the loss against Lumbus last year? That was fun.

Record: 29-27, 39 Points
4 Exact Scores, 6 Game Winning Goals

6-1 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

Sens light up the lowly Blue Jackets in a big way.

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

4-1 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

Columbus is having a terrible year and I can't see much reason the Sens won't just cruise past them.

Record: 29-27, 32 Points
0 Exact Scores, 3 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

This is a good game for the Sens from start to finish, although a late goal makes it look closer than it should've been.

Record: 25-31, 26 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

6-1 Senators
GWG: Jean-Gabriel Pageau

The Blue Jackets are bad. Really bad. Last time in Columbus, Ottawa won 7-3 and I'd expect a similar result this time around, even though Ottawa hasn't played like a playoff team.

Record: 27-29, 36 Points
3 Exact Scores, 6 Game Winning Goals
