Game 6 Prediction Panel : Nashville Predators @ Ottawa Senators

Who wins? Who loses? Who predicts it right?

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.

3-2 Senators
GWG: Erik Karlsson

After playing four of the first five on the road, Ottawa finds a way to win this one back at home by a 3-2 score. Erik Karlsson will have a dominant game and also score the winning goal.

Record: 3-2, 3 Points
0 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

1-0 Senators
GWG: Shane Prince

Really tough D corps to go against makes this a low scoring affair. I think Anderson gets his first shutout of the season in a quiet game, with Shane Prince getting his first NHL goal.

Record: 1-4, 2 Points
1 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

2-1 Senators
GWG: Mika Zibanejad

Just have to beat Rinne.

Record: 3-2, 4 Points
1 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

4-3 Predators
GWG: James Neal

I predicted three straight wins the week before, it's only fair that I come back with three straight losses. One can only hold so much pessimism inside before he bursts. I think Shakespeare said that.

Record: 3-2, 3 Points
0 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Senators
GWG: Bobby Ryan

The Sens will put up a solid effort at home in front of a Saturday night crowd. Bobby will put up a beauty of a game, scoring a pair of goals in this one.

Record: 4-1, 6 Points
1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Predators
GWG: Seth Jones

The Sens carry the play but Pekka Rinne is more than up to the task and Seth Jones capitalizes on a defensive zone breakdown in overtime to collect the full two points for Nashville.

Record: 5-0, 6 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals


No pick submitted.

4-0 Senators
GWG: Jean-Gabriel Pageau

The team's second home game brings out the absolute best in them. A strong defensive effort combined with a rare shellacking of Pekka Rinne leads to a dominant win.

Record: 4-1, 4 Points
0 Exact Scores, 0 Game Winning Goals

3-1 Senators
GWG: Mika Zibanejad

I know Nashville was a solid team last year, but I just don't see them beating out other Central teams this year. Considering this is a home game as well, I think Ottawa shouldn't have too much trouble. After all, Ottawa's defence will get a lot less work after playing a highly offensive team like Pittsburgh.

Record: 2-3, 3 Points
