Silver Nuggets: Donovan out eight weeks, Cheechoo down to fourth line

Not much news today, but here's a quick rundown of the Ottawa Senators shizznit:

  • With Shean Donovan's injury (more below), Peter Regin and Jesse Winchester will both draw in to the lineup. Lines are lining up like so: Michalek-Spezza-Alfredsson; Foligno-Fisher-Shannon; Ruutu-Kelly-Neil; Cheechoo-Regin-Winchester. (Twitter)
  • The prediction panel is on again tonight, and it's surprisingly optimistic; only one dude (Russel, from Sens Underground) picked the Buffalo Sabres to win. (Citizen)
  • Back to Donovan's injury, he had an MRI which 'reviled' MCL and maybe ACL damage on his knee. Apparently eight weeks is an optimistic estimate of time he'll miss, but I guess with the Olympic break he could be back for the second half. (TSN)
  • The ever-heroic Donovan spoke about the Matt Cooke hit that caused the knee injury, and didn't sound like he was too upset with Cooke. (Senators, on mp3)
  • Binghamton lost 5-2 last night. Ouch. (Sharp on the Sens)
