Montreal Canadiens (12-4-2) at Ottawa Senators (11-6-2)

This should be a tough one against the conference leaders, but I’ve learned to stop doubting the Ottawa’s ability to overcome adversity this season. I think the Binghamton/Ottawa Senators have the edge at home.
Record: 11-8
Exact scored predicted: 2

Tough test for the new-look Sens.
Record: 11-8
Exact scores predicted: 1

Carey Price is 6-1-1 with a .947 save percentage in his last 8 starts in Ottawa. Hard for me to against the Habs with those numbers — unless Petr Budaj makes another surprise start.
Record: 9-10
Exact scores predicted: 1

I’m going to keep picking Ottawa’s opponent to win until Ottawa loses again.

I have no idea. For different reasons, I can’t believe these two teams are doing as well as they are…so I’m just going with the home team that has just one regulation loss at SBP.
Record: 11-8
Exact scores predicted: 0

The Sens will probably lose one of these days.
Record: 11-8
Exact scores predicted: 4

I pick against the Sens at my own peril, but the Habs are really rolling right now with Carey Price and the Ottawa is due for a letdown game.
Record: 12-7
Exact scores predicted: 1
