The Senators are back from the All-Star Break to take on the Devils in New Jersey tonight, and--aside from Erik Karlsson--should be well-rested. Ottawa has the advantage in the season series so far, winning the only game, but the Devils have been playing some much-improved hockey since their terrible start to the season.
Some players I'll be watching tonight:
- Robin Lehner: The Senators have one win in 2011, and Robin Lehner was in net for it. Will he go two for two?
- Colin Greening: Plays his first NHL game tonight, and should get a decent amount of ice time to show what he can do. So... what can he do?
- Patrik Elias: The only representative of the Devils in the All-Star Game has points in five straight games, and 10P in his last eight games. He's tearing it up right now.
- Rod Pelley: Probably had a few Rodka tonics over the break, but you'd better believe he's back to compete.
- Martin Brodeur: Yes Martin has five wins in his last seven starts. So maybe he's not completely lost his game.
