After suffering a loss in extra time for the first time this season against the Winnipeg Jets, the Ottawa Senators return to the road to take on the Philadelphia Flyers, at 1:00 pm EST. The game will be available on RDS2, TSN5, and TSN 1200.

The Flyers are coming off a 7-4 loss to the Colorado Avalanche (hey!) but have otherwise played well recently, with five straight wins leading up to that game.

Shane Pinto's suspension expired after yesterday's game and he will make his season debut tonight. Since Ridly Greig has been phenomenal at center this season, expect Pinto or Josh Norris to line up on the wing. Their strength in finishing on scoring chances means that could be the best position for both of them.

*one minute after I finish writing this*:

Expect Mads Søgaard to get the start on the second half of a back-to-back.
