Game 23: Ottawa Senators @ Pittsburgh Penguins

Note the early time for today's game. The Senators come off two 19-shot efforts (a win against LA and a loss against Dallas), while the Penguins have won their last four. To boost the Sens' offense, Matt Carkner will sit on the bench while Erik Karlsson finds his way into the Senators' line-up once again. Pascal Leclaire gets the start in net.

Who will I be watching today?

  • Erik Karlsson - he's spent the last two games in the press box, partly due to the flu but also partly because of his defense lapses. Will he bring his A game tonight? Let's hope so.
  • Chris Phillips - The Sens are playing against a team with two of the best players in the world. Phillips will be relied on heavily for his shutdown game.
  • Nick Foligno - He has to score sometime... right?
  • Sidney Crosby - I'm sure there are a number of readers who dislike Crosby, but he's one of the best in the game (if not the best), and is a joy to watch with the puck.
