Projected lineups for Maple Leafs-Senators
KANATA, Ont. – Here are the projected lineups for Saturday night’s game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place.

The Leafs held an optional skate, while the Senators, after a 2-1 overtime loss to the Islanders on Friday, also went with an optional practice.

On Friday, Jim O’Brien was called up from Binghamton as “insurance” for an ailing Spezza, who is battling the flu. Spezza played against the Islanders, but O’Brien still went into the lineup, replacing Bobby Butler, who was a healthy scratch. On Saturday, coach Paul MacLean said that there would be no changes to the lineup.
