Ottawa Senators (1-1) at Montreal Canadiens (1-1)

If the Senators play as poorly as they did in Montreal, it’ll be a quick series the rest of the way. Perhaps they turn things around at home?
Record: 26-24
Exact scored predicted: 3

Nice to guess the split right, but now it gets hard. I’ll try the Sens to bounce back at home.
Record: 32-18
Exact scores predicted: 1

Have a feeling that if the Sens can’t win this one, they’ll have a hard time getting back control of this series.
Record: 27-21
Exact scores predicted: 2

I’m going back to the well of getting an exact score in game one. That, and this series has the makings of a back and forth affair. It’s Ottawa’s turn to make adjustments.
Record: 27-22
Exact scores predicted: 2

I’ve yet to get a prediction right in the playoffs. I’m hoping that changes tonight, because “changes” — most notably, the valued last change with home ice advantage in hand — will be important.
Record: 28-22
Exact scores predicted: 4

Senators 3, Canadiens 1
We’ve all been permanently damaged watching Ottawa’s incomprehensible power play this season, but at some point it’s going to click and win them a game. I think that miraculously happens tonight at home.
Record: 31-19
Exact scores predicted: 3
