Quick one today, because who reads on Saturdays?
- UPDATE: Brian Elliott's going to get his first start of the season tonight against the Thrashers. (Ottawa Citizen)
- As you saw in Silver Nuggets yesterday, lines are changed. Daniel Alfredsson and Nick Foligno swap spots from the lines that finished the Islanders game. (Ottawa Citizen)
- Looking for predictions for tonight's game against the Atlanta Thrashers? The Citizen's pundit panel takes guesses. Unfortunately, because I'm going to the game, I predicted a Senators loss. (Ottawa Citizen)
- Whoa, Jason York joined the Sun's BlackBerry panel? Maybe now I have a reason to read it. They're talking about Pascal Leclaire's awesomeness. (Ottawa Sun)
- Oh yeah, you know how Jason Spezza and Chris Neil got in a disagreement in practice yesterday? Turns out Neil was just trying to help Spezza improve his fighting skills. (Ottawa Citizen)
- Too bad--Robin Lehner's unbeaten streak to start his OHL career ended yesterday after the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds lost to the Guelph Storm by a score of 2-1. (OHL.com)
- Wicked story about Jonathan Cheechoo's hockey-filled youth in Moose Factory. (Ottawa Citizen)
- Ilya who? Ilya Zubov, last season's leading scorer for the Binghamton Senators, isn't playing but isn't yet released/traded, but who cares? Off-season acquisitions Martin St. Pierre (3G, 2A) and Ryan Keller (2G, 2A) are making up for any lost offence. (theAHL.com)
- UPDATE: There's something so rewarding about the phrase 'winless Maple Leafs'. (Sports Network)
