Game 17: Ottawa Senators @ Boston Bruins

The Sens begin what is likely their toughest road trip of the season tonight in Boston. Some thing I'll be watching for:

  • How will Filip Kuba play in his first game of the season? How will Erik Karlsson fare re-united with his former partner?
  • Will Ottawa's second line of Mike Fisher, Daniel Alfredsson, and Milan Michalek be able to put forward any semblance of an offensive attack today?
  • Is tonight the night when Alex Kovalev falls back into his vastly less effective alter ego, or will he continue gellin' like Magellan with Jason Spezza and Peter Regin?
  • Speaking of Regin, will he be able to continue his incredible play?
  • Will Brian Elliott miss a beat after missing last game, or will he just keep on rolling?
  • Elliott will be playing his 100th NHL game tonight, as will Matt Carkner.
  • How will the Bruins treat Chris Neil after he dropped noted non-fighter Denis Seidenberg last time these teams met?
  • Finally, will Chris Phillips be able to rebound from a bad game against Vancouver?

Join us here during the game. It should be an exciting one.
