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:


Daniel Alfredsson - Kyle Turris - Jakob Silfverberg

Colin Greening - Mika Zibanejad - Erik Condra

Dave Dziurzynski - Zack Smith - Chris Neil

Kaspars Daugavins - Peter Regin - Jim O'Brien

Chris Phillips - Andre Benoit

Marc Methot - Eric Gryba

Patrick Wiercioch - Sergei Gonchar

Ben Bishop

Robin Lehner

Scratched: Derek Grant

Injured: Jason Spezza, Guillaume Latendresse, Milan Michalek, Erik Karlsson, Mike Lundin, Craig Anderson


Scott Hartnell - Claude Giroux - Jakub Voracek

Brayden Schenn - Danny Briere - Wayne Simmonds

Simon Gagne - Sean Couturier - Maxime Talbot

Zac Rinaldo - Ruslan Fedotenko - Harry Zolnierczyk

Braydon Coburn - Nicklas Grossmann

Kimmo Timonen - Luke Schenn

Erik Gustafsson - Bruno Gervais

Ilya Bryzgalov

Brian Boucher

Scratched: Mike Knuble, Kurtis Foster

Injured: Tye McGinn, Matt Read, Jody Shelley, Andrej Meszaros

Quote of the Day

[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
