Game two: Ottawa Senators @ Toronto Maple Leafs

Whatever anyone says about the Battle of Ontario being dead, I'm still pretty stoked for the game tonight. I don't care if we're both teams that missed the playoffs last year; I want to see how we stack up.

As you may have read in today's Silver Nuggets, Shean Donovan is in the lineup, and will be counted on for a little physicality against the Leafs--as will Chris Neil, Matt Carkner, Mike Fisher, and Jarkko Ruutu. And the monster Jonas "Burnin' Up" Gustavsson will make his NHL regular-season debut tonight.

I'm excited. Can't wait for the puck drop.
