5-3 Hurricanes

I think the wind may be out of the sails a little bit in this one for Ottawa, while the Canes might still be clinging to their slim chances.

Record: 32-35, 36 Points
3 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-3 Hurricanes

GWG: Bobby Ryan

Sens lay a beat-down on their Eastern Conference rival as they pot 3 powerplay goals to take the W.

Record: 33-34, 39 Points
2 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

Mark Stone will rock Carolina like a Hurricane. I'll show myself out.

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


3-1 Senators

GWG: Mika Zibanejad

Carolina dealt away their captain, but they still have a team that can compete with anyone on most nights. Unfortunately they often get undone by their goaltending, and Cam Ward won't help matters tonight.

Record: 35-32, 39 Points
1 Exact Scores, 3 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

Ottawa's been so terrible against the Canes for so long. But this season they've been better, and I think this'll be another win.

Record: 29-38, 31 Points
1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Hurricanes
GWG: Justin Faulk

I never trust the Sens to win a game in Carolina, because it almost never happens. I'll stick with the trends on this one as they will blow a lead in the 3rd period.

Record: 31-36, 42 Points
5 Exact Scores, 6 Game Winning Goals
