Silver Nuggets: Spezza playing tonight, Lehner has swine flu

Complete Coverage >

Finally, another hockey game! This schedule is boring now, and it's going to be overwhelming in the second half when we're playing every other night. You'd think the schedule could have been a bit more balanced... but bottom line is that we've got hockey to watch tonight.

The re-match of the re-match, and hopefully it's more like the original match (a 7-1 Senators victory) than the re-match (a 5-2 Lightning victory). Time will tell.

Darren's Take: Ah geez, the Lightning? Again? I feel I've already written about these teams too many times this season, but I suspect this game won't be a blowout (unlike the last two times they met). Ottawa's going to come out swinging with the addition of Jason Spezza, and in hopes to bust an absolutely horrible slump they've been in as of late. Also, keep an eye out for Jarkko Ruutu who seems to have Tampa Bay's number - 2 goals and 2 assists in the two games against the Lightning this season.

As always, the game thread will be open to your pre-, in-, and post-game banter.
