The Jets are playing well of late, but so too are the Sens. Could this be three straight wins for Ottawa. Yes.

I remain cynical, but I’d be happy to be proven wrong.

Exact scores predicted: 0

The Jets have both Al Montoya and Blake Wheeler playing lights out right now but the Sens can respond with Craig Anderson and Kyle Turris. This is about as even a match-up as you can get but I’ll take the home side here because they’re the only team that has an Erik Karlsson.
Record: 21-21
Exact scores predicted: 1

Bobby Ryan may be snubbed from the US Olympic team, but luckily there’s still room open on Dustin Byfuglien’s competitive eating team.
Record: 22-20
Exact scores predicted: 2
