Silver Nuggets: Winchester returns, Spezza shooting to tie a record

Cash in hand, just the ways I likes it. Now all I need it a big bowl of juice! Might I suggest... OTTAWA SENATORS HEADLINES?!?!

  • Based on today's practice lines, Jesse Winchester will make his heroic return tonight against the Buffalo Sabres. Lines look like Michalek-Spezza-Alfredsson; Regin-Fisher-Kovalev; Ruutu-Kelly-Neil; Shannon-Winchester-Cheechoo. (Twitter)
  • Prediction panel for tonight's game, and I get left off the list... for the record, I predicted a 3-1 victory for Ottawa. (Citizen)
  • Jason Spezza's got a goal in six straight games, and could tie Dany Heatley's record with a marker tonight. Good; the quicker we cleanse that guy from our record books, the better. (Sun)
  • Another possible record could come with a Brian Elliott win. It would be his eighth straight, tying his own record set last season. (Citizen)

  • "Sens take it 'game by game'." By game by game by game by game by game by game by game. And they hope to make it ten in a row tonight. (Sun)
  • "It will be a very tough tournament, a very good one with every team trying to do great [... .] All teams good and worry you, Canada and Sweden, very tough." I love reading interviews with Anton Volchenkov. (Province)
  • Further to the news that the Senators are looking (and reportedly favoured) to host the 2012 All-Star Game, Ottawa's corporate services and economic development committee has recommended the city pitch in $200k for the bid. (Citizen)
  • In the midst of a four-game losing streak, what did the Binghamton Senators do to try and right the ship? They played dodgeball. Worked for Ottawa, right? (Sharp)
