The Ottawa Senators head to Raleigh to take on the Carolina Hurricanes. Which team will come out on top? Our prediction panel weighs in.

Ottawa Senators (9-10-4) at Carolina Hurricanes (8-10-5)

Senators 1, Hurricanes 4
The Senators struggle with weird start times, let alone ones on the tail end of back-to-backs in rinks they can’t win in.
Record: 13-10
Exact scored predicted: 2

Tough matinee for Saturday’s heroes.
Record: 11-12
Exact scores predicted: 0

I never like the feeling around a 5 p.m. start in Raleigh on a Sunday. Just seems like something will go wrong for the Sens.
Record: 10-13
Exact scores predicted: 0

The Hurricanes have lost four straight and are reeling without some credible defencemen… but, the Hurricanes have 9-0-1 record in their last 10 home games against the Senators. Hmmmmmmmmmm, assuming the Senators are comfortable rolling with Lehner after last night’s win over Detroit, I’ll roll with the Sens.
Record: 11-12
Exact scores predicted: 1

No reason. Still can’t figure this team out.
Record: 14-9
Exact scores predicted: 1

Back-to-back wins? I guess it’s possible … and Craig Anderson is going to have to play a hell of a game if he wants to keep the starting job.
Record: 9-14
Exact scores predicted: 0

Really tough call to make but Ottawa tends to be flat after big victories and I expect much of the same today. While the Hurricanes have been a disappointment, they do play pretty well at home.
Record: 12-11
Exact scores predicted: 1

If there’s anything I know about three-times-ex-Hurricane Joe Corvo, it’s that he shows up against his former teams. Luckily that’s about 1/6 of the NHL.
Record: 13-10
Exact scores predicted: 0
