Hey Russell, since you're not representing the groundhogs anymore, we may have to do this long hand (settle down Pan):
Kardinal 1/1 - Exact Scores Predicted: 0Canuck 1/1 - Exact Scores Predicted: 0Pan 1/1 - Exact Scores Predicted: 0
So... GAME 2 (Home opener vs. FLA)
*** Canuck predicts: 5-3 win for Sens
Other predictions: Boos for Kovalev, cold water to wash your hands with, teeny tiny beer sample cups, Pan picks up the SCU contest jersey, random old usher tells RSU to quiet down?
Game 2 (Home opener vs. FLA)
*** Puddleduck predicts: 4-2 win for Sens
Other predictions: Kovalev will score (sorry, because he's a douchebag), some idiot in a Leafs jersey at SBP, a long slow drive home for all attending from City of Ottawa ...
13,000 cases of frostbite in the parking lot.
GAME 2 (Home opener vs. FLA)4-2 Win
Canuck, no texting!
No no no, the free beer is inside the building; it's not a massive tailgate party because too many Ottawans are complete vag........wusses when it comes to weather. (self-editing kicked in at the right time)
GAME 2***Kardinal predicts 3-1 win for the Senators over the Panthers
I also predict that the two K7s (Kuba-17 and Kovalev-27) will get booed, the Alfie chant will be a bit weak in the 1st period but strong by the 3rd, and Methot is going to THUNDER someone.
Methot is going to THUNDER someone.
Make it Kovalev, one hit and he'll disappear.
I predict that tj will hate something/someone before the game is over.
Kardinal: 2/2 (Exact Scores Predicted: 0)Canuck: 2/2 (Exact Scores Predicted: 0)Pan: 2/2 (Exact Scores Predicted: 0)Puddleduck: 1/1 (Exact Scores Predicted: 0)
I'm 2/2, with no exact scores, but I did get it right that Methot would THUNDER someone. After seeing a few more replays, I'm stepping back from my take that it was clipping rather than a hipcheck though - it's not quite as low as I thought it was.
Why not post the combined predictions for next game as a blog post? If one of you guys isn't available call-up another groundhog!
I don't know how to do a blog post...I'll get Canuck to do it ;)
For tomorrow, Ottawa 5-1 win. Things are working too well for ottawa rut now, and Florida is not looking strong. Theo is probably going to get overworked, but I don't see them losing this one. If they keep the motor running, Sens could run away with this one.
Survey says: ... 4-2 win for the Sens over Florida.
Other predictions: ... Florida fans will boo Alfie/Karlsson to try and shame Ottawa fans for their booing of Kovalev (and no-one will care), Kovalev will score (and no-one will care), ... and a mysterious Anderson look-a-like will be seen lurking in the stands during the game ...
You assume that the Panthers have fans. You also assume that said fans aren't snowbird quebecers who don't remember "l'artiste" from Montreal and won't join in on the booing.
2-1 Ottawa in O.T.Turris gets the O.T. goal.
In other predictions:Florida won't sell out, Kovetard won't score, since he's done for the month, Bisshop will start because all the lookalikes are getting too much for the Stache.
Senators 4, Panthers 2
Panthers will score one of their goals on a 5-on-3 after a weak call puts the Senators 2 men down. The ice in the arena will be softer than the ice on the Canal.
i'll be driving up the I95 from orlando to daytona during the game. will try and find it on the radio!
on another note,
Russell's rules with no exceptions: whenever you are in the biggest hurry in the morning, you WILL have to change the bag of milk.
I want to be wrong here, but 4-2 win for Panthers
Rationalle: - Sens will underestimate opponent - Sens have shot at 1st in division, and don't like such spotlight - New Young Sens team will have had too much fun in the sun in Florida - I just want to pick something different so that I have a chance to pull away in the predictions against these homers ;) - Gives me something to gloat about if Sens lose
For tj and Chuckie,
This is what Russell is talking about
Kardinal: 3/3 (Exact Scores Predicted: 0)Pan: 3/3 (Exact Scores Predicted: 0)Puddleduck: 2/2 (Exact Scores Predicted: 0)Canuck: 2/3 (Exact Scores Predicted: 0)Labru: 1/1 (Exact Scores Predicted: 0)Notapuckbunny: 0/1 (Exact Scores Predicted: 0)
next game I predict 5-4 Tampa over Ottawa in a shootout.
Love to be proven wrong
Think the winning steak ends tonight. 5-2 Bolts. St. Louis is on fire right now.
Lindback is a sieve again tonight: Senators 5, Lightning 3
I'd say 3-2 for the Sens. I have a feeling that this will be a bit back and forth.
It'll be 7-1 Senators ... I dunno why, but that number appeals to me. Must be drinking Pan's Kool-aid ...
