Game 77 Prediction Panel: Ottawa Senators @ Winnipeg Jets

Will the Sens avoid elimination for at least one more night?

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.

4-3 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

The Senators can't lose every game and this is as good a chance to win as any. Mike Hoffman continues his strong case for a big contract...from someone.

Record: 42-34, 47 Points
1 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

3-2 Jets
GWG: Nikolaj Ehers

The Jets were unexpectedly baaaad this year, but have the young pieces and farm system to rebound sooner rather than later. The Senators, who have most of their young talent currently on the NHL roster, feel the same way. Close game ended by some Danish skill.

Record: 38-38, 45 Points
6 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

5-3 Jets
GWG: Mark Scheifele

Mathematical elimination, here we come!

Record: 40-36, 45 Points
3 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals

5-4 Jets
GWG: Dustin Byfuglien

Byfuglien better not pick on Curtis this time. Uncool, Buff. Uncool.

Record: 42-34, 55 Points
7 Exact Scores, 6 Game Winning Goals

5-2 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

The Sens jet into Winnipeg, and hometown boy Mark Stone fills the net for a hat trick.

Record: 37-39, 44 Points
3 Exact Scores, 4 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Senators
GWG: Mika Zibanejad

On the verge of mathematical elimination, Ottawa gets creative and plays entertaining puck for a complete 60 minutes against a Jets club that was officially eliminated this past weekend.

Record: 11-5, 14 Points
1 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals


No Pick Submitted.

Record: 37-39, 43 Points

5-2 Senators
GWG: Mark Stone

I have a hard time seeing the Sens lose to a Jets team that has been truly awful for the past two months.

Record: 35-41, 37 Points
1 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

4-2 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

The Jets have been surprisingly terrible this year, and Ottawa's got to win at some point. Plus, Ottawa's always matched up well against Winnipeg.
