After a lengthy trip that saw them play five straight on the road, the Ottawa Senators finally return home to Scotiabank Place.
The Sens will be looking to build on a big 3-2 win over the New York Rangers on Friday night. Ottawa has been deadly on home ice, posting a league best 9-1-2 record at Scotiabank Place. Their home ice success will be put to the test though as they get a visit from the league’s top road team in the Boston Bruins.
A few line up notes ahead of this one.
Milan Michalek has apparently had a set back with his injured knee and will not play. Don’t want to jump to conclusions but you’d have to think surgery becomes a serious consideration for Michalek at this point. In the meantime, Guillaume Latendresse will take his spot. Kaspars Daugavins will also dress, taking the place of Peter Regin who is a healthy scratch.
Here is how the Senators are expected to line up
After letting in a couple questionable goals on Friday, Robin Lehner was rock solid in the Ottawa net. He’ll make his second straight start tonight against the Bruins. Lehner stopped 44 of 46 Boston shots in a 2-1 overtime loss back on February 28th.
Puck drop is scheduled for just after 7:30 PM tonight with the game available on Sportsnet and on the radio at Team 1200.
