I feel like the Sens will escape Newark with one point and not two. But let’s be honest, anytime you can get out of Newark it’s a victory by itself.
Record: 22-13
Exact scores predicted: 1

You know Marty Brodeur is getting old when news that he is starting a game provides the only basis I need to pick the Devils to lose.
Record: 18-17
Exact scores predicted: 1

This is the part where I think attrition will kick in and the Sens will actually build off the momentum of a big win. Maybe this will also be the part where I couldn’t be more wrong.
Record: 19-16
Exact scores predicted: 1

You may have noticed my prediction panel record isn’t great. That’s not an accident. I’ve been modelling my performance after that of the Senators themselves, which means it’s about time I started to turn things around. That begins in earnest tonight.
Record: 14-21
Exact scores predicted: 0

The Sens don’t traditionally do well in New Jersey or the newer Prudential Centre (where Chris Neil scored the building’s first ever goal – that’s for you Bonks Mullet) but they took two there last season and should be coming in on a high. Feels like a winning streak is coming on.
Record: 18-17
Exact scores predicted: 1

Baby this teams lights the mups from your back / It’s a Devils trap, it’s the start of a back to back / We’re gonna win 4 to 1 / ‘Cause Sens like us, baby we were born to go on a two game run
Record: 18-17
Exact scores predicted: 1
