Lehner saves the day and sparks a full-on goalie controversy.

Even if I get this prediction wrong, I’m just going to act like Keshia Chante (re: her Twitter feed) and pretend it never existed.

Just when you think things are at their worst, the Sens bounce back. The same can be said when things are good. They lay an egg. As I spin the wheel of inconsistency, it has landed on “time to win again”.
Record: 13-7
Exact scores predicted: 1

This Senators season has been a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hide-Your-Eyes-This-Hockey-Is-Terrible adventure on ice, and for that reason I have absolutely no confidence in this prediction. But since their last effort was abysmal, I’ll predict this one to be slightly okay — despite the surge in play from the Flyers.
Record: 8-12

I would be surprised if the Senators came out flat for this one. When this team is emotional, they play well and they certainly have some payback in mind for the Flyers after the fiasco last week in Ottawa. No question the Senators need to have this one, and they will.
