The Sens come into this one with memories of a pre All Star slide still fresh in their minds. Ottawa closed out a grueling West Coast road trip with losses in Anaheim, Los Angeles and Phoenix and will be looking to get back on track in Beantown.
Meanwhile, the Bruins should also be hungry after dropping their last game before the break, a 5-3 loss at the hands of the Washington Capitals. The Bruins hold a four point lead over the Sens coming into tonight but have played five fewer games.
Picking up right where he left off before the break, Craig Anderson will get another start in the Ottawa goal. Brian Lee is still nursing a lower-body injury and will not play tonight. Here is how the Sens are expected to line up.
Puck drop is scheduled for just after 7:00 PM with all the action available on Sportsnet and TVA Sports.
- Yesterday, the club announced that forward Peter Regin has undergone successful shoulder surgery and will be out for 4-6 months. Just a brutal season for Regin who is a restricted free agent at the end of the season.
- More bad news for Nikita Filatov as this morning we learned that he has been demoted to the MHL, which is basically the Junior leagues of the KHL. Incredible to watch how fast Filatov has fallen this season. From the Sens top line to start the year all the way to Russian minor leagues.
A proposal to the loyal SensChirp readers...
I’ve teamed up with the good folks at Local Heroes on Clyde Avenue for the first ever SensChirp Gathering. We all meet here in the comment section on a daily basis, why not get together and head to Friday’s game against the Islanders? For just $60, you get a ticket to the game (300 Level), $15 worth of food from Local’s and transportation to and from the game. Bus leaves from Locals at about 6:15 PM.
