A coin flip of a game for me, so I’m going with the home team.

The Sens always play the Habitants tough, and here they’re catching Montreal in its first game at home after a six-game road trip.
Record: 20-23
Exact scores predicted: 1

I am liking the way Craig Anderson is playing these days. My hope is that Raaymakers and I aren’t the only ones taking the Sens.

Montreal is coming off a six-game road trip, their longest of the season, and I’m counting on them to have a bit of a let down game.

I’m going Costanza with this pick. I think the Habs will win.

I’m not entirely sure why James still has me on this panel. Maybe to make the other guys look better? If so, I’m doing a hell of a job.
Record: 17-26
Exact scores predicted: 0

The Sens haven’t had a meaningful win on the road since they beat Washington and Detroit back in November. They’re probably due for another one but I don’t think it comes tonight against the Habs.
Record: 22-21
Exact scores predicted: 1

I’ve been working all day on singing Mark Stone to the tune of “Ole ole.”
Record: 23-20
