The Ottawa Senators head to the desert to take on the Phoenix Coyotes. Which team will come out on top? Our prediction panel weighs in.

Ottawa Senators (27-18-6) at Phoenix Coyotes (21-20-8)

Senators 3, Coyotes 4
While the Senators probably don’t want to take a long flight home after losing three in a row, it would probably be tough not to look past this one after so much time on the road.
Record: 28-23
Exact scored predicted: 1

Turris scores three against his former team.
Record: 31-20

Haven’t we all learned from the Joe Corvo saga? Pencil David Rundblad in for a hat trick in Phoenix.
Record: 29-22
Exact scores predicted: 1

Although Ottawa hasn’t played a complete game in awhile and at the risk of Alex Auld getting the nod between the pipes tomorrow, I’ll give the Senators the benefit of the doubt and hope that they have an inspired effort in Kyle Turris’ return to the desert.
Record: 32-18
Exact scores predicted: 2

Sens are out of gas. Need the break. No team has played more prior to the All Star break.
Record: 30-21
Exact scores predicted: 1

Has the magic run out? Maybe. Or maybe the Sens will find a way to win one before they split up for the All-Star Game. This one could to either way.
Record: 32-19
Exact scores predicted: 3

The Sens looked completely gassed against the Kings. It seems this month of road games has finally caught up to them. However, I’m still going to cross my fingers and hope they can finish strong. Wait, is O’Rourke reffing this game?
Record: 34-17
Exact scores predicted: 2

Senators 2, Coyotes 3
The Ottawa players look like a group ready for their All-Star break and probably won’t have much left in the tank for the Coyotes. If Kyle Turris puts a big amount of money on the board, that might change things.
Record: 29-21
