Senators 1, Rangers 2
I’m assuming everyone else on the panel is taking the Sens, so I’ll take the Rangers in the hopes of gaining a game on the rest of you losers.

I picked the Senators to win in six and with them having a 3-2 lead in the series, there’s no reason for me to pick the Rangers. Hopefully Ottawa scores early and Chris Neil’s hit on Brian Boyle serves as some kind of distraction for the Rangers that gets them away from the bigger picture.

On the show before the playoffs I picked the Rangers in seven, so this is a detour. The status of Alfredsson is interesting. The Rangers will get Hagelin back, but appear to have lost Boyle. Tough call, but for the first time in this series one team has momentum. The Sens ride that to round two tonight.

I still can’t believe we’re in this position, but here we are: The Sens are within one win of advancing to the second round of the playoffs, at the expense of the top Eastern Conference team from the regular season. What’s more, the Senators deserve to be where they are, and have actually looked like the better team for most of the series.
Record: 48-37
Exact scores predicted: 4

Andy is in #Beastmode. Time to close this out!

Went back and forth on this until I had to just take the side with momentum. Ottawa may be the only team with enough chutzpah to beat Lundqvist three games in a row. Bring your earplugs.
Record: 48-37
