Tomorrow's game, an 8:30 PM start, is the Senators first in Winnipeg this season. The Jets are a game below .500 this season but have posted an impressive 5-3-0 record at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg.
If today's practice is any indication, it looks as though Paul MacLean will go with the same line up as last night against the Canes. That means Brian Lee will likely be the healthy scratch and Nikita Filatov will get another shot on the team's top line with Spezza and Greening. Lee was not at practice this afternoon for personal reasons
Chris Neil skated with the rest of the team but is still wearing a non-contact jersey. No timetable for his return just yet but he is getting closer.
- Now that Nick Foligno has temporarily assumed the role of second line centre, you can expect Bryan Murray to continue his search for some help down the middle. Derrick Brassard and Kyle Turris remain the names mentioned most often in the rumour mill.
- The WHL's leading scorer and Sens prospect Mark Stone was among the 41 names invited to Team Canada's Selection Camp next month. Jean Gabriel Pageau, who is injured, and Matt Puempel were both left off the list. The full roster can be seen here and you can check out the latest prospect update right here.
- The first clue has now been posted in the SensChirp Search. The hunt will take place on December 8th with clues posted throughout the day. The actual search does not begin until 6:00 PM. Follow @SensChirp and @Wisers_Ottawa for contest updates and info.
