Normally I’d hesitate taking the Senators in an afternoon contest, but they’ve been playing so many of these this season they must be getting used to it. Plus, Paul MacLean planned to “have the roosters out early” today.
Record: 12-7
Exact scored predicted: 2

Now that Sergei Bobrovsky’s regressing to career norms, I’m expecting the Sens to roll after their comeback victory over the Bruins.
Record: 10-9

Looking to cap a five-game homestand with a record of 4-1, The Sens are putting together a nice November (4-1-2). The Blue Jackets are headed in the other direction with a record of 1-4-3 since Halloween.
Record: 13-6
Exact scores predicted: 1

No excuse for Ottawa in this one, as the Gaborik-less Blue Jackets are falling fast and maybe–just maybe–the Sens have risen from their early-season slumber.
Record: 8-11
Exact scores predicted: 0

This one doesn’t feel right. Afternoon game coming off an emotional win over Boston. A letdown performance would be in character for this uneven Senators team.
Record: 9-10
Exact scores predicted: 1

Ottawa will dominate for the last 55 minutes after Columbus is given the traditional 2 goal handicap awarded at the start of every afternoon home game.
Record: 11-8
Exact scores predicted: 0
