Silver Nuggets: Winchester Out Three Weeks, Elliott To Play Full Game

Here are the Ottawa Senators related stories appearing on the internet today (to be updated if any news breaks):

  • Jesse Winchester will be out for three weeks with a lower body injury. This is really not a great time for a bubble player like Winchester to get injured... here's hoping he has a swift recovery. (Ottawa Sun)
  • Brian Elliott will start on Monday against the Tampa Bay Lightning and is expected to play the entire game. (Ottawa Sun)
  • There's no link to a story for this one, but a comment on last night's game: where were the hats for Mike Fisher? Just because it is preseason doesn't mean that the guy didn't put forth a great game deserving of your headwear. On home ice, there's no excuse for not tossing your hat for a hat-trick.
  • TSN is reporting the practice lines from today, and there are a few changes: Nick Foligno was playing with Ryan Shannon and Alex Kovalev on the second line, while Peter Regin centred a line with Jonathan Cheechoo and Mike Fisher on the third. Jarkko Ruutu, Chris Neil, and Chris Kelly formed the fourth line, and a fifth practice line was made up of Shean Donovan, Zach Smith, and Christoph Schubert. On defense, Erik Karlsson remained paired with Filip Kuba. (TSN Ice Chips)
  • When Kovalev is not stickhandling around opponents, he's apparently stepping on the Senators logo in the dressing room, which is apparently a faux pas. (Gazette)
  • The award for most bizarre Sens-related headline of the day? Jason Spezza's brother Matt cruises at 170 km/h in a Porsche to stop an alleged assailant, and is never instructed by 911 to slow down. (Citizen)
  • Sens owner Eugene Melnyk donates enormous sums of money for a monument that honours James Creighton, one of hockey's founding fathers. (Kelowna News)
