Leclaire, Neil, Donovan return to lineup tonight

After missing far too many games to injury, Pascal Leclaire, Chris Neil, and Shean Donovan will find their way back into the lineup for the Senators tonight.

Leclaire will start in net for tonight's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins after missing the last month with the fractured cheekbone he suffered from a Mike Fisher shot that hit him on the bench. Goaltender Mike "Not Martin" Brodeur has been reassigned to Binghamton.

Chris Neil will join Jarkko Ruutu and Chris Kelly on the third line for tonight's game, taking the spot of Jonathan Cheechoo who has been bumped up to the second line with Alex Kovalev and Mike Fisher.

Shean Donovan will enter the lineup on the fourth line in Chris Campoli's old spot. Campoli will be a healthy scratch, and Josh Hennessy will return to the AHL.

The top line for tonight will see Peter Regin centring Milan Michalek and Daniel Alfredsson
