It's Edmonton's first trip to Ottawa in two years, and Ottawa will try and play spoiler.

Only roster notes for Ottawa are that Brian Elliott will get the start, and Peter Regin will take the spot of recently-traded Antoine Vermette on the team's third line.

For Edmonton, newly-acquired W Ales Kotalik and C Patrick O'Sullivan will make their debuts after being acquired yesterday before the NHL trade deadline. Kotalik is on the first line with Shawn Horcoff and Ales Hemsky, while O'Sullivan will play one the second line with Marc Pouliot and Sam Gagner.

I'll be at the game tonight, so I won't be participating in the game thread, but that doesn't mean it won't be awesomely fun.
