The Ottawa Senators hit the road to take on the Boston Bruins. Which team will come out on top? Our prediction panel weighs in.

Ottawa Senators (15-17-7) at Boston Bruins (25-10-2)

The Senators showed a lot of life against the Penguins, but this is a tough opponent to face back-to-back. If they haven’t worked all the tryptophan out of their systems, they could be in trouble.
Record: 22-17
Exact scores predicted: 4

For some reason I think everyone on the panel is taking the Bruins in this game.

The first game of back-to-back games on back-to-back nights versus the Bruins. I fully expect these teams split the games this weekend, so thanks to the way the Senators have been playing in back-to-backs (0-5-4), I’ll pick them to win this first game.
Record: 21-18

It’s a simple pick until proven otherwise. The Sens won their last game.
Record: 21-18
Exact scores predicted: 1

So when was the last time these Senators won two games in a row? That’s what I thought.
Record: 16-23
Exact scores predicted: 0

I’ve always liked the road teams right after the Christmas break. The home team is bloated and happy. The road team is bloated but back to business. If there’s a time to steal one in Boston, this is it for Ottawa.
Record: 19-20
Exact scores predicted: 1

Hopefully Ottawa hasn’t let the win against Pittsburgh get to their heads as much as I let all this turkey go to my thighs. Boston’s tough to beat at home.
Record: 20-19
Exact scores predicted: 2
