The Ottawa Senators and the NHL Seaons Preview, Part 4 of 4: NHL Predictions

Although the season has officially started this afternoon when the Carolina Hurricanes defeated the Minnesota Wild 4-3, it doesn’t start until SenShot makes its famous predictions for the upcoming season! It’s a time were I also reflect on my predictions of last year, where I said the Pittsburgh Penguins would repeat as Stanley Cup Champions and defeat the eventual winners Chicago Blackhawks in 5 games. Close, but no cigar.
