I flipped a coin, which determined it would be a tarot card reading over a palm reading. Soooo…Minny.

Minnesota was absolutely blown out in Montreal last night, so maybe last night’s blown no goal call will be the rallying moment that the Sens desperately need.

Yes. I’m calling a tie. I can’t figure this team out right now. Ok. 4-3 Sens on an overtime goal that bounces off Michalek’s ass, because I think that’s the only way he scores right now.
Record: 13-8
Exact scores predicted: 1

Ottawa looked pretty good last night against Philadelphia so I’m tempted to pick them to turn things around, but I can’t wrap my head around picking the Sens over the Minnesota Wild. Also: Dany Heatley is on the fourth line.
Record: 8-13

Ottawa will put up a fight, but rest assured, something will go wrong. The Wild are in a different stratosphere than the Senators right now.
Record: 10-11
Exact scores predicted: 1

The Sens might not even need a starting goalie tonight after all of that sky that has fallen on the CTC ice. But they probably will need a goaltender, and they will probably choose the wrong starter according to Gord from Arnprior. Gord is restless, Sens! He’s about to make some serious trade proposals if you’re not careful! Think of all the 2nd round picks you’re going to hypothetically lose! Get it together! For Gord! For Gord!
Record: 11-10
