Silver Nuggets: Keller called up, Fisher out tonight

Here are your Ottawa Senators stories for today:

  • UPDATE: Mike Fisher will be out tonight with an upper body injury. It's apparently not serious. (Gordon)
  • To fill in for Fisher, the Sens called up Ryan Keller from Binghamton. Keller leads the B-Sens with 13 goals, 9 assists, and a +15 rating. (Senators)
  • The lines at today's skate: Michalek-Spezza-Shannon; Foligno-Regin-Alfredsson; Ruutu-Kelly-Neil; Cheechoo-Winchester-Keller. (Twitter)
  • UPDATE (from Peter): In Lou We Trust has an insanely in-depth preview for tonight's game, which includes a guest appearance from yours truly (Peter) on Dean McAmmond as well as a look at tonight's matchup. (ILWT)
  • Good feature on Milan Michalek and his Olympic hopes. I don't think Milan has to worry about making the Czech Republic team. (Senators)
  • Highly-touted goalie prospect Robin Lehner was named the CHL Goalie of the Week after posting two shutouts, a 0.67 GAA and a save percentage of .974 in the past three games. Congrats to Robin on his recognition. (CHL)
  • Mike Brodeur on getting called up: "I was as happy as a kid in a candy store." Hey, he sounds like the other Brodeur! (Canoe)
  • Your prediction panel for tonight. Looks like most feel the Senators' luck has run its course. (Citizen)
  • Good article on how the Sens have found success in the basics. (National Post)
  • Finally, Dany Heatley Speedwagon with a clever discussion of the performance of various Sens players. (Scarlett Ice)
  • UPDATE (from Peter): Obviously, Robin Lehner is in contention for a spot on Sweden's World Junior Championships team, but did you know that his teammate Tomas Rachunek, who happens to be the son (crazy, right?) of former Senators defenceman Karel Rachunek, is in contention for a spot on the Czech Republic team?
