A Friday Night visit to Buffalo

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.

3-2 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

This game will be as bad as you would expect a game between two bad teams to be. Robin Lehner has had a good year since returning from injury but the Senators take this one.

Record: 38-33, 43 Points
1 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

2-0 Sabres
GWG: Rasmus Ristolainen

What’s the result that will bring the most sadness to Sens land? A Robin Lehner shutout.

Record: 34-37, 41 Points
6 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

For all their season-over-season improvement, Buffalo still isn't a very good team.

Record: 36-35, 40 Points
3 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Senators
GWG: Jean-Gabriel Pageau

Dear God, will this season never end?

Record: 39-32, 51 Points
6 Exact Scores, 6 Game Winning Goals

3-1 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

Three point game for the captain as the Sens stomp the Sabres.

Record: 35-36, 42 Points
3 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

4-3 Sabres
GWG: Jack Eichel

Eichel scored the first goal of his career in the first game of the season versus Ottawa and has four points in three games against them. Why stop there?

Record: 7-4, 9 Points
1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Senators
GWG: Cody Ceci

Ceci's offense has come alive in the back half of this season and he'll be the difference maker as the Sens overcome a two point nigh from Jack Eichel

Record: 36-35, 41 Points
2 Exact Scores, 3 Game Winning Goals

2-1 Sabres
GWG: Jack Eichel

Robin Lehner will steal yet another game for his new team.

Record: 32-39, 34 Points
1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

5-4 Senators
GWG: Zack Smith*

I'n going to stop betting against Smith, as he just can't quit scoring. Buffalo is still a horrible team, but at least they're looking like team that belongs in the NHL. It's still hard to pick against Ottawa here.

*Ed note: Submitted before finding out Smith is a game time decision

Record: 33-38, 44 Points
5 Exact Scores, 6 Game Winning Goals
