After a couple full days off, Daniel Alfredsson was back in his usual spot on the second line right wing with Nick Foligno and Kyle Turris. All players were present and accounted for at today’s skate with the exception of Ben Bishop who continue to nurse a minor lower body injury. Jesse Winchester was on the ice but wont play tomorrow afternoon.
Here is how the Sens lined up…
The Sens haven’t really been getting favours from anyone lately but Crosby and the Penguins could certainly help Ottawa’s cause with a win in Buffalo tonight. The Penguins are coming off back to back loses against the Islanders and should be a motivated group against the Sabres. Right?!
A Sabres win would pull them even with the Senators but Ottawa has the tiebreaker and a game in hand.
Sens fans will also be keeping a close eye on the Florida/Columbus game. Boy there is a sentence I didn’t expect to write this season. While Florida is still holding the division lead, they are just three points clear of Washington.
A reminder that puck drop is just after 1:00 PM tomorrow so be prepared to do some afternoon hockey watching/drinking.
- For those of you that missed it yesterday, be sure to join the Daniel Alfredsson tribute page on Facebook. A fan lead initiative will see Sens fans countdown from ten and chant Alfie at the next home game on Tuesday night.
