Pre-season game 5: Ottawa Senators v. Tampa Bay Lightning

Exhibition Game 5: Ottawa Senators v. Tampa Bay Lightning
Evraz Place (Regina, SK), 9 p.m. EST
Radio: Team 1200 TV: None
Enemy: Raw Charge

As you may have read yesterday in our Silver Nuggets news run-down, Brian Elliott will play the whole game this evening in Regina. On defence, Jared Cowen's going to get his second taste of NHL action, and he's going to have a booster club in the stands, with his family making the short three-hour drive from Saskatoon [Ottawa Citizen]. I'm not sure how the defence lineup will work out, but the Citizen lists seven defencemen as dressing tonight... I don't quite think that's the case.

Here's tonight's lineup, according to the Ottawa Citizen:

Milan Michalek Jason Spezza Daniel Alfredsson
Nick Foligno Ryan Shannon Alex Kovalev
Peter Regin Mike Fisher Jonathan Cheechoo
Jarkko Ruutu Chris Kelly Chris Neil
Filip Kuba Erik Karlsson
Jared Cowen Chris Phillips
Chris Campoli Brian Lee
(Spare: Matt Carkner)
Brian Elliott
Mike Brodeur
