The Ottawa Senators return home to take on the Vancouver Canucks. Which team will come out on top? Our prediction panel weighs in.

Vancouver Canucks (12-9-5) at Ottawa Senators (10-11-4)

Senators 2, Canucks 3
One of the league’s best possession teams against a middle-of-the-pack group? The B2B doesn’t help either.
Record: 14-11
Exact scored predicted: 3

Tough back to back.
Record: 12-13
Exact scores predicted: 0

The Sens have alternated wins and losses in the last four games and the pattern says they are due for a loss. But the one thing we have learned about the Sens is they don’t fall into a predictable pattern.
Record: 12-13
Exact scores predicted: 0

This season the Senators are 0-3-2 in the second of back-to-back games and 1-7-2 versus the Western Conference. I think I’m going to roll with the Vancouver Canucks.
Record: 12-13
Exact scores predicted: 1

The Sens are an inconsistent team that is coming off a win. They are 1-7-2 vs the west, and the Canucks watched them play from Ottawa last night.
Record: 14-11
Exact scores predicted: 1

Hey, maybe Wednesday’s win will mark a turning point, but it’s been one steps forward and two steps back this year–and the tail end of a back-to-back against a Western Conference team seems like a recipe for a backslide.
Record: 9-16
Exact scores predicted: 0

At some point this Senators team is going to string together two good games and I think it happens here tonight. We’ve been fooled before but I liked the emotion and focus they showed in Washington.
Record: 13-12
Exact scores predicted: 1

I’m still currently riding the high of the Verizon Center organist playing “Light A Mup” so I’m going to make an extremely reckless prediction off an emotional back to back.
Record: 14-11
Exact scores predicted: 0
