While on the surface it appears like the Sens may be in tough without Craig Anderson, the way the offence has been clicking of late they just might be able to surprise the power house Bruins. Add in the fact that Boston was in Buffalo last night and the Senators may have a chance to jump on the visitors early.
Tuukka Rask got the start for the Bruins last night so we can expect to see Tim Thomas tonight.
Led by Erik Karlsson and Jason Spezza, the Sens have been filling the net at an incredible rate lately. Ottawa has scored 21 goals over their last four games and will give the Bruins all they can handle. Against a physical Bruins team, MacLean will reinsert Matt Carkner for some added toughness. Brian Lee comes out.
Here is how the Sens are expected to look...
Puck drop is scheduled for just after 7:00 PM tonight with all the action available on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada. CBC has a stream available on their site for fans that can't tune in. And if you are in the building tonight, BE LOUD! With Anderson out, the Sens could use an added boost and they can get that from a raucous Saturday night crowd.
GO SENS GO!
- Murray has indicated that he'll wait till the weekend is over then decide whether or not he needs to add a goalie. From what I've been told, he has already begun to evaluate the available options but is in no rush to make a move. There has been some talk about Dwayne Roloson as on option but I don't get the sense that is the type of move Murray is looking to make.
- While I still do not expect Bryan Murray to be active over the next few days, that doesn't mean he will be sitting on his hands either. Murray will be actively scanning the market for a bargain.
