NHL: Ottawa Senators at Arizona Coyotes Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

The Ottawa Senators wrap up their three-game road trip tonight in Arizona, facing off against the Coyotes. The Sens are currently on a three-game losing streak following their hot start, as they look to snap that tonight.

Roster Notes

Mike Condon will get his second start of the season. With Mark Borowiecki suspended for three games, Christian Wolanin will draw in as the seventh defenceman, in his first game of the season.

Here’s the projected lineup, based off of last game’s combos.

Dzingel - Duchene - Stone
Formenton - Tierney - Ryan
Paajarvi - White - Boedker
McCormick - Pyatt

Chabot - DeMelo
Lajoie - Ceci
Wolanin - Jaros
Harpur

Condon (starter)
Anderson

Game Notes

  • Christian Wolanin makes his season debut, following an impressive ten-game stint with the Sens at the end of last season, where he scored a goal and two assists.
  • Jack Rodewald will be Ottawa’s healthy scratch. He’s been off to a start in Belleville with seven points in eight games. Not bad for a player who only two seasons ago was brought in to replenish the ECHL affiliate.
  • Mike Condon finally gets his chance, after Craig Anderson has been given almost every opportunity, and has succeeded. Condon’s lone game this season wasn’t a pretty one, surrendering five goals on 29 shots against the Bruins.
  • Jason Spezza will play his 1,000th NHL game tonight. Ross wrote a fantastic retrospective look at his career a while back, definitely worth giving a read.
  • It’s a late one, with game time at 10:00 p.m. You can catch the broadcast on TSN5.
