Hey, remember all those playoff series where the Senators were heavy favourites but a goalie got in their heads with outlandish play? Yep, pretty sure OTT prefers this view.
Record: 26-23
Exact scored predicted: 3

I figured on a split and guessed right on the Sens in Game 1. I suppose I will stick with the split, though Anderson/Price situation gives me pause.
Record: 31-18
Exact scores predicted: 1

Sens have only taken a 2-0 series lead one other time in franchise history. I say that stat stays intact after Game 2.
Record: 26-23
Exact scores predicted: 3

The Sens have the momentum and the questions surrounding Carey Price’s performance have already begun.
Record: 27-20
Exact scores predicted: 2

The worst news for Montreal is that I don’t think they can play much better than they did last night. I know the Sens can. If the gap between Anderson and Price continues to be that wide, nothing else matters. This will be over Tuesday.
Record: 27-21
Exact scores predicted: 2

Can the Senators leave Montreal with an unprecedented 2-0 series lead? I don’t know, but I don’t want to bet against them again.
Record: 28-21
Exact scores predicted: 4

Michel Therrien won’t have a shortage of material to motivate his Habs with. I’m still thinking this series is a seven-gamer, so Montreal evens it up tonight.
Record: 30-19
Exact scores predicted: 3
