This should be a hard fought game that the Senators have a decent shot at winning. Still, hard to pick against the Conference-leading Habs at home this season.
Record: 16-10
Exact scored predicted: 3

I really liked the way Ottawa played against Boston on Monday, but they didn’t come out with the two points needed. I’ll take the home team here, since the Habs have been good at the Bell Centre.
Record: 13-13
Exact scores predicted: 2

I predict a one-goal game where maybe for the whole game, but at least at times, the Sens goaltender keeps his team in it. That’s all I got. Where’s that coin?
Record: 15-11
Exact scores predicted: 1

At some point, the Canadiens will have to fall back to Earth, because on paper they’re not the best team in the Northeast Division (let alone the Eastern Conference). But tonight, with the game in Montreal and the Sens’ abysmal road record, I think Montreal’s got a good chance of extending their winning streak.
Record: 15-11
Exact scores predicted: 4

Ottawa’s doing a fine job picking up OT points and I think they grab another tonight, but the Habs are at another level right now. They only fear The Daugavins.
Record: 16-10
Exact scores predicted: 2
