Game 21 Preview: Ottawa Senators @ Philadelphia Flyers

Jared Cowen takes a moment to check how straight his stick was during last Tuesday's game - USA TODAY Sports

A preview of the game between the Ottawa Senators and Philadelphia Flyers on 19 November 2013.

The Senators are in Philly looking for revenge after last week's disaster, and are also looking to bounce back from Sunday's game.

Robin Lehner gets the start today. No other lineup changes.

MacArthur - Turris - Ryan
Michalek - Spezza - Conacher
Greening - Smith - Neil
Condra - Grant - Zibanejad

Methot - Karlsson
Phillips - Borowiecki
Cowen - Gryba

Lehner (starter)
Anderson

Some notes for tonight:

  • Please do better against Philly this week than last week. Please.
  • Ottawa finally moved out of last place for shots against per game! Though by so little, it's rounding to the same value as last place Buffalo - 36.0.
  • Kyle Turris is pointless in 3 games now, and has fallen behind on his point per game pace.
  • Robin Lehner could take the NHL lead SV% tonight, but only if Scrivens lets a few in against Tampa.
  • Despite all the negativity lately, the Sens are still firmly on the playoff bubble.
  • Sens actually outshot someone again! Let's make that 2 games in a row.

Here are some stats for the two teams this evening.
