Silver Nuggets: Scotiabank Place gets busier

WINNIPEG, CANADA - NOVEMBER 29: Chris Phillips #4 of the Ottawa Senators celebrates a second period goal at 19:16 by Milan Michalek #9 (not shown) against the Winnipeg Jets at the MTS Centre on November 29, 2011 in Winnipeg, Canada.

You'll be reading a lot about Chris Phillips' 1000th NHL game with the Ottawa Senators and Mike Fisher's return to this town over the course of the day, so I'll steer clear of those stories and talk about something else that could be pretty cool: The Ottawa 67s joining the Senators at Scotiabank Place for the next two seasons, while Lansdowne Park (and the Civic Centre) undergo some pretty major renovations.

For 67s fans, this might not be the best news, because these games are usually a cheaper option than Senators games, and an easier one to get to. Hopefully, with parking lot improvements aimed at improving OC Transpo service to SBP, it will be easier for 67s fans to get there.

As a Senators fan, though, I'm just hoping we get to see some double-headers. That would be awesome.
