TV: Sportsnet Radio: TEAM 1200
Finally, we've got another game. Here's Ottawa's lineup for tonight:
Darren's Take: This game marks the triumphant return of Peter Regin, who missed three games with a shoulder injury. He'll take to the ice against the only team with a power play that is worse than the Senators'. Hopefully, the Senators take advantage of playing an offensively-challenged team (that is missing key forward Jason Arnott) and give the Predators the same kind of warm welcome they gave to the Tampa Bay Lightning. A note of caution though: the Predators have historically done very, very well against Pascal Leclaire, who will be starting in net for the Sens.
Also, here's hoping a banged-up Jason Spezza and linemate Jonathan Cheechoo manage to get their first goals of the season to silence some of their critics.
