Ottawa Senators (12-8-4) at New York Rangers (12-8-2)

Senators 1, Rangers 2
Heading into Madison Square Garden to take on Henrik Lundqvist and the Rangers is a big mountain to climb for a low-scoring team on a losing streak.
Record: 15-9
Exact scored predicted: 3

Ottawa is due to break through. Lehner beats his idol (if Henrik plays).
Record: 14-10
Exact scores predicted: 1

The Sens are on a slide, while the Rangers are catching fire with Rick Nash back in the lineup. So while everything points to a New York win, I’m going to go with Ottawa — because it’s been that kind of year in the prediction business.
Record: 12-12

Another game featuring two streaking teams — the Rangers have won four while the Senators have dropped four straight. The Rangers are coming off of a 2-1 win last night however, so Ottawa may catch them in the second night of back-to-back games.
Record: 13-11
Exact scores predicted: 1

Can’t help but feel like the late-game comeback last game has Ottawa feeling pretty good, and Milan Michalek’s return was a good thing too. Add to that Robin Lehner’s opportunity to seize the reins here and there’s a recipe for another unlikely Sens win.
Record: 13-11
Exact scores predicted: 4

There’s got to be an end to this brutal road misery for Ottawa and they finally catch a break with a tired Rangers team. Forgive the hyperbole, but the standings say this is a must-win game… and they will.
Record: 14-10
Exact scores predicted: 1
