Projected lineups for Senators, Flyers

PHILADELPHIA -- With the early start to Saturday's game, neither the Ottawa Senators nor the Philadelphia Flyers skated before their game.

With the Flyers coming off a win against the Washington Capitals in their prior game, it's doubtful they change their lineup. Defenseman Erik Gustafsson, who left that Feb. 27 game against the Capitals with a lower-body injury, said after practice Friday he would be ready to play Saturday.

The Senators, who lost in overtime to the Boston Bruins on Thursday, will make one lineup change, with Ben Bishop to start in goal after Robin Lehner made 44 saves in the overtime loss to the Bruins.

Here is how the Senators and Flyers could look when they hit the ice at Wells Fargo Center:

SENATORS

Daniel Alfredsson - Kyle Turris - Jakob Silfverberg

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
