The Ottawa Senators try to extend their three-game winning streak tonight against the Pittsburgh Penguins, but it's not going to be easy. In fact, the Stanley Cup-defending Penguins will be the Senators biggest test of the season so far, and will show us all how Ottawa measures up against some of the league's elite talent.

Peter Regin will not play tonight due to his upper-body injury, but Ryan Shannon is back in the lineup and will take his place on the third line. In nets, Pascal Leclaire will start for Ottawa. Lines in practice Monday morning looked like this:
