Senator's Line up:
- After a bit of a slow start, Robin Lehner has posted astounding numbers on his way to a 4-2 record with an excellent .927 Save % in Binghamton. This will be his first start for MacLean in a regular season NHL game and he'll be under the gun against the Leafs.
- The line of Greening - Spezza - Michalek are on a tear. Combining for 5 points last night, they were pivotal in turning the tide against the Rangers, with Michalek scoring both the tying goal and the shootout winning goal, Spezza scoring 2 in the third and Greening making Lundqvist's life hell. Look for more of the same!
- The return of Gonchar and Kuba is widely celebrated right now in Sensland, and why not. They've both played some of their best hockey to date for the Sens recently and look to continue.
- 29:45, 2 assists (NHL assist leader, NHL D-man point leader) = Erik Karlsson. What the heck else can you say? He's the bee's knees.
- Butler draws in - although Filatov was called up, it appears that Butler will draw into the lineup tonight - or is there another lineup change on the way? Certainly won't be Konopka, unless he gets suspended...
- Alfredsson won't play tonight after a hit to the head by Wolski last night in NY, his long term status is unknown.
- Da Costa has another big game tonight to show that he belongs as the 2c - and to support Spezza and co. Watch out for Dion!
