I’m running out games to catch the panel leaders, so I’d imagine the majority will pick the Sens to win over a hapless Hurricanes team.

It’s impossible to make a call on what will happen in a sporting event after the events of yesterday. Especially one involving a team that was in the city where the event took place. So, with that. I’ll just take the home team.
Record: 23-18
Exact scores predicted: 1

The Sens are rolling, and although yesterday’s events might have the team rattled, I think they’re still in good shape.
Record: 26-15
Exact scores predicted: 4

There’s not an easy opponent left in the season for Ottawa, but this is as close to it as they’ll get. Carolina is limping to the finish line and Ottawa should be able to lock down another two points.
Record: 27-14
Exact scores predicted: 3
