Silver Nuggets: Sens have the flu? Boo hoo!

H/T to Elliotte Friedman for reminding me of Owen Nolan's infamous statement. Anyways, here are your stories for game day:

  • UPDATE: Zach Smith has been recalled for tonight's game. (Marek)
  • There's a flu bug going around the Ottawa Senators' dressing room, so there could be plenty of lineup changes for tonight's game against (of course) the Leafs. They always get the flu-ridden Sens, don't they? (Citizen)
  • Biggest story from the flu? Looks like Brian Elliott has the flu, and therefore Pascal Leclaire will probably get the start after being pulled 7 minutes into last game. (Garrioch)
  • When asked if pulling Leclaire was fair, coach Cory Clouston simply replied, "There's no such thing as fair in hockey. We're trying to win games." (Citizen)
  • When asked if he was gearing up to fight Colton Orr tonight, Matt Carkner responded "Am I looking for it? What do you think? I'll just let everyone guess out there." (Mendes)
  • Another Ottawa Senators blog deems tonight's game a must win. The flu might disagree. (AOSB)
  • If you have NHL Network, you can watch Sens prospect Mike Hoffman and the Saint John Sea Dogs take on the Moncton Wildcats at 7:00pm on March 14. (Oursports)
