The Senators have had plenty of time to prepare for this one, but I just don’t see them knocking off the Bruins this time.
Record: 15-10
Exact scored predicted: 3

Everything — and I mean everything — points to a Boston win here. The Bruins are clearly the class of the East and they’ve had Ottawa’s number for a while now. Plus, this is a classic trap game for Ottawa, as it’s the first game back after a long road trip. But as I did on Friday night, I’m going against logic and taking the Sens.
Record: 13-12
Exact scores predicted: 2

Having beat the Rangers in another one-goal game, I just can’t see Ottawa winning two straight by beating a Bruins team that has historically given the Sens trouble.
Record: 14-11
Exact scores predicted: 2

You have to admire how the Sens performed Friday night to snap a slide, but the first game at home after a trip is tough, even tougher against what I believe to still be the class of the east.
Record: 14-11
Exact scores predicted: 1

A low scoring game between the Senators and Bruins? No way!
Record: 14-11
Exact scores predicted: 4

It seems like Ottawa is loosening up goal-wise and the games have become more of a scramble. The Bruins have a lot of firepower and will use it to full advantage tonight.
Record: 15-10
Exact scores predicted: 2
