Senators could have forwards back soon

Senators could have forwards back soon

The injury-riddled Ottawa Senators could welcome back two players early next week.

Coach Paul MacLean stated that forwards Peter Regin and Milan Michalek might return to the lineup on Monday.

Regin has missed two games with an injury to his chest while Michalek has missed one game with a knee injury.

With Jason Spezza out indefinitely after having back surgery and the devastating loss of dynamic defenseman Erik Karlsson to a lacerated Achilles tendon, times are certainly tough in Ottawa.

But alternate captain Chris Phillips feels that the best thing for his team to do is avoid dwelling on the situation.

“Our team is a lot better with those guys in the lineup. For us right now, the biggest thing is to not be thinking about that,” Phillips said. “[We have to be] confident in this group, in our ability and in the guys we have in to replace them. As a group, we all have to pick it up and try to fill those roles.”

Quote of the Day

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
