FREE NHL PREDICTION SENATORS VS MAPLE LEAFS
My pick in this one is going to be the Senators as they face their divisional rival Leafs. They are playing a back to back, but a divisional game is something the Senators could use in order to get some fight back into their season. On paper the Senators should not win this, but I think there is going to be an upset for this matchup.
