Ottawa Senators (12-7-3) at New York Islanders (8-11-2)

Senators 2, Islanders 3
The Senators came a bit unraveled in Philly and I don’t see them getting things turned around on the road 24 hours later.
Record: 13-9
Exact scored predicted: 2

They need this one badly. And a win for Lehner.
Record: 13-9
Exact scores predicted: 1

Today’s coin flip says the Sens will beat the Islanders. Don’t ask me why.
Record: 11-11
Exact scores predicted: 1

After losing yesterday,  I can envision the Sens going on a bit of a slide during this roadtrip.
Record: 11-11
Exact scores predicted: 0

If the Sens had “just lost” to the Flyers I’d be inclined to give the edge to an Islander team that hasn’t played since Thursday. However, the Sens also lost physically to Philly, to the point where their 40 year old captain felt he had to get involved. Pride is a great motivator.
Record: 13-9
Exact scores predicted: 1

I have zero confidence in this pick, but I’m thinking maybe a little boost from Alfie’s outburst last game as well as the fact that they’re playing the Islanders could do well for the Sens. But even if they do pull this one off, Ottawa’s luck is going to run out pretty soon.
Record: 13-9
Exact scores predicted: 4

Ottawa needs a bounceback game in a bad way and the emotion from Philly should spill over into today. This would be a tough one to lose for the Sens, even on a back-to-back. I think they’ll find a way.
Record: 13-9
Exact scores predicted: 1
