Regin, Carkner back for Senators
Here are the projected lineups for the game Saturday night between the Vancouver Canucks and Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place. The Senators held a full skate, while the Canucks went with an optional practice.

After missing the last 24 games with a shoulder injury, Peter Regin returns to the lineup and will play on the Alfredsson line, but according to coach Paul MacLean, he will not be taking faceoffs. Matt Carkner will also play in his first regular season game Saturday after completing a conditioning stint in Binghamton. Sergei Gonchar is day-to-day with an upper-body injury. Filip Kuba (shoulder) is skating, but MacLean estimated that he is still approximately a week away from returning. Zenon Konopka and Nikita Filatov are the healthy scratches.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
