Despite getting pulled early in last night's contest, Craig Anderson will be back between the pipes for the Senators tonight. Anderson has been decent this season but needs to be better if Ottawa is going to stay competitive.
I like the decision by Paul MacLean to go back to him tonight.
MacLean will also make a change on the back end. Brian Lee will draw back in for David Rundblad. The rookie defenceman played over 15 minutes last night and finished the game a -1. Seems pretty clear that MacLean is hoping to stabilize things defensively.
No changes expected up front as Chris Neil will miss his second straight game. Word is Neil has an ankle sprain but there is no timeline on his return at this point in time.
Here is how the Sens are expected to line up...
Tonight's game can be seen on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada. Puck is scheduled to drop just after 7:00 PM but with the Hall of Fame ceremonies pregame, expect the start to be delayed.
