Silver Nuggets: Leclaire starts again, Regin scratched again

The Ottawa Senators have points in two consecutive games, and they're looking to extend that streak tonight against the Montreal Canadiens. Some game day headlines:

  • Mr. Predictable Cory Clouston keeps the same lineup as last game, meaning Peter Regin will sit out again. It makes no sense... did the offensive output of the lineup really inspire that much confidence? It didn't for me. (@SeguinSports)
  • Two Three (!) holdouts picking the Senators in the prediction panel: Leader Jeremy Milks and I are ever optimistic. (Sens Extra)
  • Apparently Brian Elliott is nursing a bit of an upper-body injury, so expect Pascal Leclaire to get his second consecutive start tonight. (Sun)
  • Speaking of the goalies, they're just "trying to give the team a chance to win." (Pascal Leclaire, in the Sun)
  • Chris Kelly, unsung hero. He's fine with that. (Citizen)
  • Daniel Alfredsson's seven-game pointless streak matches a career low set in his rookie season. Let's hope he doesn't beat it tonight. (Sun)
  • Great piece by Elliotte Friedman on motivating players when you know you can't trade them. He's also got a few good notes about the Sens in his 30 Thoughts. (CBC)
  • The Mayor with another Dany Heatley photo gallery. (SENS Town)
