Neil to return to Senators lineup

Right wing Chris Neil will return to the Ottawa Senators' lineup for the game against the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday.

Neil missed Ottawa's past five games after sustaining a lower-body injury Dec. 30 when he collided with Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals.

Canadiens center David Desharnais will be a game-time decision. He was a late scratch with the flu Tuesday in Montreal's 4-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils.

Here are the lineups both teams likely will use Thursday:

Max Pacioretty - David Desharnais - Brendan Gallagher

Rene Bourque - Lars Eller - Daniel Briere

Michael Bournival - Brandon Prust - George Parros

Andrei Markov - Alexei Emelin

Douglas Murray - Raphael Diaz

Carey Price

Peter Budaj

Scratched: Francis Bouillon

Injured: Davis Drewiske (shoulder), Alex Galchenyuk (hand), Ryan White (upper body)

SENATORS

Colin Greening - Jason Spezza - Mark Stone

Clarke MacArthur - Kyle Turris - Bobby Ryan

Erik Condra - Zack Smith - Chris Neil

Milan Michalek - Mika Zibanejad - Cory Conacher

Jared Cowen - Erik Karlsson

Chris Phillips - Cody Ceci

Marc Methot - Eric Gryba

Craig Anderson

Robin Lehner

Scratched: Patrick Wiercioch, Joe Corvo, Matt Kassian

Quote of the Day

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
