Silver Nuggets: Leclaire to start; Lee in for Carkner

A late batch of headlines before tonight's game between the Ottawa Senators and Minnesota Wild:

  • Pascal Leclaire gets the start in nets, while Brian Lee will finally see some game action. Matt Carkner will be the healthy scratch miss the game to nurse a cut in his leg. (@NHL_Sens)
  • My record has taken a beating recently in the prediction panel. Today, most have called for an Ottawa win. (Sens Extra)
  • All sorts of Brian Lee headlines as the Sens head to his home state of Minnesota. He's been "frustrated and disappointed" after being scratched the last 25 games. (Sun)
  • Lee wants to play tonight. His family will be in the stands. (Citizen)
  • Ottawa's offence is heating up, at least a little bit. (Citizen, via Gazette)
  • A father's road trip? Cue the winning streak! (CitizenSun)
  • If that's not good enough for you, the Senators just changed their skates! Cue the winning streak! (Citizen)
  • The Sens should rebuild? Cue the losing streak! (Citizen)
  • Expect Jared Cowen to have a bigger role than last year at the World Juniors. I hope so, because he was benched for most of last year's. (Sens)
  • The Sens brass are also high on defender David Rundblad, who we should also see in the World Juniors this year. (Edit: Rundblad is not eligible for the WJC this year due to age) (Sun)
  • Barry Brust has been key to the fairly modest success the B-Sens have had this season. (Press & Sun Bulletin)
