It's Alfie, it's Spezza, it's the Sens!  For two nights this week, the Ottawa Senators will have a new home as games on Monday, Oct. 27, and Thursday, Oct. 30, will be produced by – and available exclusively on – NHL Network.  These games mark the first of three Ottawa Senators match-ups available exclusively on NHL Network during the 2008-09 NHL season.

Veteran broadcaster Judd Sirott will handle play-by-play duties for both Senators games this week, and will be joined in the booth by game analyst Bill Clement, with Gary Green between the benches at ice-level.  Brian Duff and Craig Button will be in-studio with further analysis and highlights.

In the first game, Daniel Alfredsson and the Senators take on their Northeast Division rivals, the Buffalo Sabres, on Monday, Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. ET.  Three nights later, on Thursday, Oct. 30, the Sens continue their road trip as they head south for another exclusive NHL Network-produced contest when they take on the Florida Panthers beginning with a 30-minute pre-game show at 7 p.m. ET.

NHL Network's live 40-game broadcast schedule also includes nine contests featuring the Montreal Canadiens, five contests featuring Sidney Crosby and the 2007-08 Stanley Cup finalist Pittsburgh Penguins, five originally-produced NHL Network games, and one additional Ottawa Senators match-up exclusive to NHL Network.  Five late-season Sunday games will also be selected at a later date to take advantage of the more compelling match-ups as the race for the playoffs heats up.

In addition to coverage of the 2008-09 NHL season, NHL Network has 17 regular-season Central Collegiate Hockey Association games live on Saturday nights during the 2008-09 season.
