Craig Anderson is 8-0-1 in his career against Florida and will get the start tonight? Good enough for me. I’m starting to believe that when Eugene Melnyk says, “We are the envy…”, he is referring to the team’s soft schedule to start the season.
Record: 1-1
Exact scores predicted: 0

You can only play the games that are on the schedule, but having said that, the schedule is pretty soft for the Sens to start this season. They take advantage of that again here.
Record: 1-1
Exact scores predicted: 0

Although I don’t think this game will be as one-sided as the last matchup between these two teams, there’s no reason the Senators shouldn’t walk away with another win. The Panthers were just abysmal last game, virtually top to bottom, and I don’t see where the answers to their problems will come from in the short term (obligatory Kovalev reference).
Record: 1-1

With a good chance to go 3-0 to start the year, you can bet Ottawa is ready to do a repeat dance on the stumbling Panthers tonight. If Spezza and Alfie can get uncorked — and chances are one of them will — it should be two points in the bank for the visitors.
Record: 2-0
Exact scores predicted: 0
