Game nine: Ottawa Senators v. Boston Bruins

The Ottawa Senators are looking to get off to a stronger start than last game against the Boston Bruins, and they're probably going to have to. Even though the Bruins are 4-4-1 on the season so far (compared to Ottawa's 5-2-1 record), they won five of six meetings last season, so it's safe to say this won't be a cake-walk for the Senators.

Lineup for tonight's game should be just about the same as Thursday's, except with Brian Elliott starting in nets:

Whooooo! Hockey Night in Canada!

Darren's Take: The Senators have come back with a big win after all of their losses so far this season, and after a heartbreaking loss to the Predators in OT on Thursday, let's see if the team can rebound. The Bruins have a tendency to do well against the Sens, and were 5-1-0 in the season series for 08/09. The Sens obviously look to improve on that record. Jason Spezza has been due for a goal for, oh, eight games now, so let's see what he can manage tonight. Also, let's see if Alex Picard can put forward a better effort than the one that saw him miss the entire third period of the last game.
