If Sens focus on beating em in the alley, they could get distracted.

Toronto’s scorer’s seem to be rolling of late, so that’s why I’m leaning their way.

Does the score even matter? All the talk around this one suggests there’s a MMA card at Scotiabank Place tonight. Anyways, take the always good at SBP Sens to cap the home-stand at 4-1.

At first, I was thinking the Sens would fall back to Earth hard with a loss to the Leafs, but I think the fact that it’s in Ottawa so that MacLean can play the match-up game (and Carlyle can’t) bodes very well for the Sens. Another win should be in the offing.
Record: 23-11
Exact scores predicted: 4

It feels good to have this rivalry back after a few polite years. I thought Ottawa was entering a rough stretch but they looked strong against the Rangers. Sens will top the Leafs in goals, hits and fists tonight.
Record: 23-11
Exact scores predicted: 3
