The Senators are in Philly looking for revenge after last week's disaster, and are also looking to bounce back from Sunday's game.
Robin Lehner gets the start today. Â No other lineup changes.
MacArthur - Turris - Ryan
Michalek - Spezza - Conacher
Greening - Smith - Neil
Condra - Grant - Zibanejad
Methot - Karlsson
Phillips - Borowiecki
Cowen - Gryba
Some notes for tonight:
- Please do better against Philly this week than last week. Â Please.
- Whoops, back to last place for shots against per game. Â Minnesota has a low shots for per game so that might come back down - but then, the same could have been said for Philly.
- Kyle Turris is pointless in 3 games now, and has fallen behind on his point per game pace.
- Robin Lehner could take the NHL lead SV% tonight, but only if Scrivens lets a few in against Tampa.
- Despite all the negativity lately, the Sens are still firmly on the playoff bubble.
- Sens actually outshot someone again! Â Let's make that 2 games in a row./
