The Senators did not practice Thursday morning after flying in from Ottawa in the morning following a loss on home ice to the Washington Capitals. The only lineup change for the Senators comes in goal as Alex Auld will make his seventh appearance of the season and first start since Nov. 20 -- a 2-1 overtime loss to the Vancouver Canucks. Craig Anderson is the backup.
It was definitely emotional. I really appreciated the fans. It was a cool feeling and it felt special and the ovation there at the start and then you kind of feel funny out there standing by yourself. Thinking back, I was saying just a bit ago, you think back just trying to make the NHL and then you kind of reflect on all the years being able to play for a great organization here in Calgary and all the fun I've had so far in my career. I feel very fortunate and blessed.
