Game Day- Lehner Starts vs Bruins

SensChirp March 21, 2013 0

After a dramatic comeback against the New York Islanders on Tuesday night, the Ottawa Senators look to carry that momentum over on home ice.

The Sens have posted an extremely impressive 10-1-3 record at Scotiabank Place this season and will be hoping for more of the same as they begin a stretch that will see them play five straight games on home ice.  It starts tonight as the Senators go toe to toe with the Boston Bruins.

Tonight marks the third meeting of the season between the two teams. 

Boston has won both games in the season series but on both occasions the Sens were able to grab a point from a powerful Bruins team.  Robin Lehner was the starter in both those games and will get the nod again tonight.

The Bruins are coming off a rare loss as they fell to the Jets on Tuesday night.  Ottawa trails the Bruins by just three points in the race for home ice advantage but Boston does have a couple games in hand.  The two teams will meet two more times after tonight.

Head Coach Paul MacLean will make one change ahead of this one.  Marc Methot took the morning skate but will not play.  The Coach listed him as probable for Saturday's game against Tampa Bay.  With Methot out, Mike Lundin draws back in.

Here is how the Senators are expected to line up



Puck drop is just after 7:30 PM with the game available on Sportsnet and on the radio at Team 1200.
