Most interesting storyline for what is at this point a meaningless game: Who will be playing their last game in a Senators uniform, with the trade deadline Wedensday? Chris Neil? Filip Kuba? Antoine Vermette? Jason Smith? Anton Volchenkov? Antoine Vermette?
Alex Picard is out of the lineup with a reported groin strain, so Brendan Bell will draw back in for the Sens. Strange that Schubert won't get a chance to show any interested teams what he could do before the deadline, but that's the coach's decision, I guess. and Brendan Bell has been placed on waivers, so Christoph Schubert will draw into the lineup--one last showcase for him before the deadline, I suppose. Schubert will play forward in place of Shean Donovan unless Bell is claimed before game time.
Thoughts leading up to the game, and during the game? Post 'em in the thread.
