Pre-season game one: Senators @ Panthers

Exhibition Game 1: Ottawa Senators @ Florida Panthers
Halifax Metro Centre, 6 p.m. EST
Radio: Team 1200 TV: None
Enemy: Litter Box Cats

It's finally here. The Summer of Dany was agonizingly long and painful, but that chapter is over, and there's actually a hockey game being played tonight. Ottawa Senators. Florida Panthers. In... Halifax. For a meaningless pre-season game. But it's still hockey, and it's still the Ottawa Senators.

The roster for the game, according to Michael Sharp, and lines are my projections (and they are probably entirely wrong):

Martin St. Pierre Peter Regin Ryan Shannon
Denis Hamel Josh Hennessy Erik Condra
Jarkko Ruutu Chris Kelly Shean Donovan
Matt Carkner Cody Bass Chris Neil
Christoph Schubert Erik Karlsson
Brian Lee Chris Campoli
Alexandre Picard Drew Bannister
Pascal Leclaire
Robin Lehner
