Headlines for the Ottawa Senators heading into game three of the Eastern Conference Quarter-Finals against the Pittsburgh Penguins:

  • Ottawa's got no lineup changes, which means Ryan Shannon remains in the lineup and Brian Elliott starts. (Garrioch)
  • The prediction panel tonight is split: Three see Pittsburgh keeping the momentum, three see Ottawa regaining it thanks to home ice advantage. Guess which side I fall on! (Citizen)
  • Jay McKee will draw into the Pens lineup in place of Jordan Leopold, who is 'day-to-day' but didn't travel with the team to Ottawa. That roster change will likely increase the physicality of a series that's already up there. (Sun, TSN)
  • Cory Clouston wants the Senators to increase their physical play to match the Penguins; he wants guys to be like Andy Sutton. (I'm guessing he wants them to score more than he does, though.) (Citizen)
  • Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article: "View from Ottawa: Senators need Crosby clone" Newsflash: So do 28 other teams, and the Pens probably wouldn't mind one to go along with the original. (Post-Gazette)
  • Not something you see everyday, but a good article on Bleacher Report about Sutton's hit: "you can't blame Sutton because Leopold had his head down. That hit needs to be made or Sutton isn't doing his job." (B/R)
