Game Day 5: Sens @ Blue Jackets

by Craig Medaglia / Ottawa Senators

Here are 5 things you need to know before tonight's game in Columbus against the Blue Jackets.

1. Line-up

Some line-up notes for tonight...

  • Only change is Chris Wideman checks back in in place of Patrick Wiercioch
  • The lines have also received a slight shuffle in an effort to try and balance out the offensive production.

And here's a look at the Sens projected line-up for tonight...

2. Goalies

Craig Anderson gets the start in goal tonight for the Sens. Andy has faced the most shots in the league this season with an even 1,400 through 44 games (that's an average of 31.8 shots per game). Andrew Hammond backs up him up tonight.

Joonas Korpisalo will start in goal for Columbus tonight.

3. Last meeting

These two teams last squared off in Ottawa back on November 19th, 2015 with the Sens blanking the visiting Blue Jackets 3-0. Erik Karlsson did what Erik Karlsson does and that's provide the offense. The Sens captain factored in on every goal finishing the night with 2 tallies and an assist along with earning the game's first star. In goal, Craig Anderson was very solid turning aside all 25 shots he faced in the victory to earn the shutout.
