Eastern Conference Echoes: The Hunt Starts Early For 6 Teams

5 of 7

Ottawa Senators- 13-16-3 (29 points/9th in conference)

Why they’ll make the play-offs:

It’s hard to say because they’re not getting strong play from any of their players; however, they have four veterans that have the skill to really pour it on: Daniel Alfredsson, Jason Spezza, Alex Kovalev, and Sergei Gonchar.

Why they could miss the play-offs:

3 of the 4 veterans are in the twilight of their career and they’re showing it. Unless they return to form, they will miss the play-offs.
