Here are the projected lineups for Saturday night's game between the Columbus Blue Jackets and Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place. The Senators held a full practice, while the Blue Jackets elected not to skate, after coming off a 5-2 loss Friday night to the Red Wings in Detroit.
Milan Michalek – Jason Spezza – Colin Greening
Nick Foligno – Mika Zibanejad – Daniel Alfredsson
Erik Condra – Zack Smith – Chris Neil
Jesse Winchester – Stephane Da Costa – Zenon Konopka
Jared Cowen – Sergei Gonchar
Chris Phillips – David Rundblad
Erik Karlsson – Filip Kuba
Craig Anderson gets the start, with Alex Auld serving as backup.
Peter Regin remains out of the lineup with an injured shoulder. He has been evaluated but results have yet to come in – they are expected to be announced tomorrow or Monday. Zenon Konopka returns to the lineup, and Brian Lee remains a healthy scratch. Both Bobby Butler (groin) and Matt Carkner (knee) skated with the team, but there is no timetable on their respective returns.
Rick Nash – Derick Brassard – R.J. Umberger
Vinny Prospal – Antoine Vermette – Alexandre Giroux
Maksim Mayorov – Samuel Pahlsson – Derek Dorsett
Cody Bass – Derek MacKenzie – Ryan Johansen
Fedor Tyutin – Radek Martinek
Grant Clitsome – Mark Methot
Kris Russell – Aaron Johnson
Steve Mason is expected to get the start, with Allen York serving as backup. York was called up from Springfield on Thursday after an upper-body injury to Curtis Sanford in practice.
Radek Martinek was hit by Darren Helm during Friday's game against Detroit, and may have suffered a concussion. He is being re-evaluated today. There has yet to be a call-up from Springfield at the time of this post.
