Silver Nuggets: A-Train returns, Clouston for Jack Adams?

It's been a while, so we've got plenty of links for you today:

  • Anton Volchenkov's back for tonight's matchup against the New Jersey Devils, while Alex Picard takes a seat to make room for him. Brian Elliott gets the start. (Twitter)
  • Lines for tonight are changed from last game: Michalek-Spezza-Alfredsson; Kovalev-Regin-Shannon; Foligno-Fisher-Cheechoo; Ruutu-Kelly-Neil. (Twitter)
  • A lot of prediction panellists are picking the Sens' streak to keep going, including myself. (Citizen)
  • Is Cory Clouston really entering the picture as a Jack Adams Trophy candidate? I guess the turnaround is pretty impressive, but I'm not sure his accomplishments are as impressive as those of Joe Sacco in Colorado or Dave Tippett in Phoenix. (National Post)
  • Along with Clouston, the Senators are starting to get some attention, too. All it takes is a six-game winning streak. (ESPN)
  • There's little doubt that Erik Karlsson's play has improved tremendously since the beginning of the season; Ken Warren looks at the kid's growth. (National Post)
  • Nichols makes a good point about the choice comments Dean Lombardi made about Jack Johnson's development, and relates that to the stunted growth we've seen from Sens' d-man Brian Lee. (The 6th Sens)
  • SLC takes a look at what the Senators may have to offer if they are indeed sellers at the deadline, as some local media have suggested. (Five For Smiting)
  • And although SLC says Volchenkov shouldn't be going anywhere, Duff thinks he's as good as gone at this point. (Another Ottawa Senators Blog)
  • The Hockey News' Sam McCaig thinks Volchenkov might be on his way out, too. (THN)
