Complete Coverage >

The Ottawa Senators are in the midst of a 4 game winning streak, but defeating the league-leading Washington Capitals will be no easy feat. What makes it even more difficult than it normally would be is that Anton Volchenkov will be sitting out and unable to shut down Alexander Ovechkin.

Brian Elliott starts in net tonight, as you probably expected.

So, who will I be watching tonight?

  • Matt Cullen: Cullen's been one of the best players on the ice recently, yet his point totals as a Senator do not reflect that. Hopefully he can get his name on the score sheet a bit more frequently.
  • Brian Lee: Lee will be playing with Chris Phillips, which means he'll see his fair share of Alex Ovechkin. This has me extremely worried. If there was a game for Lee to show why he was picked 9th overall, this is that game.
  • Andy Sutton: with Volchenkov out, Sutton has to be shot blockin' for two!
  • Alexander Ovechkin: actually, I may not be watching him. I may be looking away nervously every time this guy touches the puck.

As always, join in on the fun in the comments before and after the puck drops!
