Projected lineups for Islanders, Senators

OTTAWA -- Here are the projected lineups the New York Islanders and Ottawa Senators likely will use when they play Tuesday at Scotiabank Place:

ISLANDERS

Matt Moulson - John Tavares - Brad Boyes

Josh Bailey - Frans Nielsen - Kyle Okposo

Michael Grabner - Keith Aucoin - Marty Reasoner

Matt Martin - Casey Cizikas - Colin McDonald

Travis Hamonic - Andrew MacDonald

Thomas Hickey - Lubomir Visnovsky

Mark Streit - Joe Finley

Rick DiPietro

Evgeni Nabokov

Scratched: David Ullstrom, Eric Boulton

Coming into Ottawa after a 7-0 blowout loss to the Philadelphia Flyers at home, the Islanders are looking to regroup on this road trip.

"[Monday] was a horrible game for us," Streit said. "If you lose 7-zip, you want to turn the page. We have a big opportunity [Tuesday] to play better. As the captain, didn't really need to say anything [after that loss]. Everybody knew what happened on the ice and how awful we played. I didn't think it was the right moment to step up in the locker room. [Tuesday] on the ice, we need to play a really good game and come together."

The Jets' backup goaltender sports a 4.33 goals-against average and .806 save percentage.

Here are the projected lineups for the Winnipeg Jets and Ottawa Senators on Saturday afternoon. Due to the 2 p.m. start, neither team held practices on Saturday.

Projected lineups for Sabres, Senators

OTTAWA -- Here are the projected lineups for the Buffalo Sabres and Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night at Scotiabank Place:

SABRES

TJ Brennan – Alexander Sulzer

Jhonas Enroth

Ryan Miller

Injuries: Patrick Kaleta, Andrej Sekera, Robyn Regehr, Ville Leino, Christian Ehrhoff

Scratches: Matt Ellis

Enroth exited the ice first after practice, indicating that he is likely to get the start. He has a career record of 3-0-1 against the Senators, with a 2.16 goals-against average and a .939 save percentage.

Ehrhoff skated briefly at the beginning of practice, then left the ice and did not return. Pardy, who was recalled from Rochester on Monday, is expected to fill the hole in the lineup.

SENATORS

Mika ZibanejadKyle TurrisDaniel Alfredsson

Milan MichalekZack SmithJakob Silfverberg

Craig Anderson

Ben Bishop

Injuries: Guillaume Latendresse, Jason Spezza, Jared Cowen, Mike Lundin

Scratches: Kaspars Daugavins, Mark Borowiecki

Da Costa, who was called up from Binghamton on Monday, will see time on the fourth line, flanked by Erik Condra and Jim O'Brien.

Coach Paul MacLean said Gonchar (flu) is expected to play, and Borowiecki would likely come out of the lineup. Both will take warm-up Tuesday night.

With only one goal in their last two games, offense has become a serious issue for the Senators. The loss of Spezza, who required back surgery to repair a herniated desk, is significant. However, the team knows that they must make up for his absence by any means necessary.

"You can never replace [Jason Spezza]," Turris said. "He's one of the best players in the League. To fill that void, we've got to simplify things, and get pucks and bodies to the net. Everybody kinds of tenses up [with the lack of offense] -- that's when you’ve got to keep shooting. Hopefully one goes off somebody's butt and in, and they all start trickling in after that."

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
