The Ottawa Senators are at Phillips Arena tonight to take on the Atlanta Thrashers. Ottawa sees it as an opportunity to victimize the cellar-dwellar whose 1-6-3 record in the last ten games has them on their way to their cellar dwelling. Atlanta sees it as an opportunity to turn their season back around against a team brutally handicapped by injuries. Only one team will emerge a winner (although if it goes into overtime, neither team will be a complete loser).
For the Senators, Pascal Leclaire gets the start in goal, and has to rebound tonight with a solid effort. At the other end, Ondrej Pavelec hopes the Senators will make him look godly again, as happened in the last time these teams met.
Game time is 7:00 pm EST, join in all the rambunctious discussion here on the live in-game open thread starting at 6:00 p.m.
