Projected lines for Flyers, Senators
Here's what the projected lineups could look like for Tuesday's game between the Ottawa Senators and the Philadelphia Flyers at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa. Both teams held full practices, with the Sens coming off a 2-1 loss to the Capitals on Saturday in Washington, and the Flyers being beaten by the Kings 3-2 in overtime Saturday.

SENATORS

Erik Condra - Zenon Konopka - Zack Smith

Filip Kuba - Erik Karlsson
Chris Phillips - David Rundblad
Jared Cowen - Brian Lee

Alex Auld will get the start in goal for the second straight game, with Craig Anderson serving as backup.

Defenseman Sergei Gonchar is day-to-day (ankle), and forward is questionable Bobby Butler while battling a groin injury.

FLYERS
James Van Riemsdyk - Claude Giroux - Jaromir Jagr
Wayne Simmonds - Danny Briere - Jakub Voracek
Scott Hartnell - Sean Couturier - Matt Read
Zac Rinaldo - Maxime Talbot - Harry Zolnierczyk

Sergei Bobrovsky will get his first start of the season in goal, with Ilya Bryzgalov serving as the backup.

Harry Zolnierczyk was called up from the Adirondack Phantoms of the American Hockey League for tonight's game, and is expected to replace Andreas Nodl, who is banged up. Also, Matt Walker could make his season debut in place of defenseman Andreas Lilja.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
