After being called up from Binghamton on Saturday to replace an injured Alex Auld, Robin Lehner will be getting his first NHL start this season, with Craig Anderson serving as backup. According to coach Paul MacLean, he decided to put Lehner in due to the Sens' heavy schedule, which features 4 games in the next 6 days.

There was no update on Daniel Alfredsson after receiving a hit to the head in Saturday’s game against the Rangers. He is still being evaluated.

Nikita Filatov was called up from Binghamton late Saturday night, but will not be playing against the Leafs.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
