Ottawa Senators (19-12-6) at Florida Panthers (12-20-6)

Senators 3, Panthers 0
Picking the obvious underdog paid off against the Sabres, but I’m not insane enough to take the Panthers with Craig Anderson back in Ottawa’s net.
Record: 22-15
Exact scored predicted: 3

One month ago this would have been automatic, but Anderson has to shake off the rust quickly for this must win.
Record: 25-12
Exact scores predicted: 1

The Sens usually win when we do the games on Sportsnet down here, so I’m going to assume that trend continues. If it doesn’t, blame Denis Potvin — not me.
Record: 18-19
Exact scores predicted: 3

The Senators are scrambling to pick up points and the players don’t need Paul MacLean to reiterate how important it is to pick up points against the worst team in the Eastern Conference. Hopefully Ottawa does not overlook their opponent.
Record: 23-12
Exact scores predicted: 2

I’ve been on the record since February 28th that the Sens will be a playoff team. If they lose to the worst team in the league, which also played last night? Not happening.
Record: 21-16
Exact scores predicted: 1

Is it a must-win game? Not really, but it’s definitely a really-nice-to-win. Especially if Craig Anderson gets the start.
Record: 24-13
Exact scores predicted: 4

Senators 4, Panthers 2
I was ready to take the Panthers tonight, but I just can’t see Ottawa losing four in a row. All they need is some goaltending at key moments. Maybe Anderson jumps back in and provides it.
Record: 24-13
Exact scores predicted: 3
