Game Day 5: Sens @ Leafs

by Craig Medaglia / Ottawa Senators

Here are 5 things you need to know before tonight's 7 p.m. start in Toronto against the Leafs.

1. Line-up

Only one change to tonight's line-up and that is the return of Patrick Wiercioch on the blueline in place of Mark Borowiecki who left Thursday's game against the Tampa Bay Lighting early in the first period with a knee injury.

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

2. Goalies

Andrew Hammond gets his second consecutive start for the Sens tonight as Craig Anderson remains out with an injury. Andy was able to take part in yesterday's optional skate and it appears that he may only be out for a short period of time. Chris Driedger is set to back up the Hamburglar up tonight.

Jonathan Bernier will start in goal for Toronto tonight.

3. Last meeting

It was a good one. Erik Karlsson had a game and dropped 4 assists in a 6-1 drubbing of the Maple Leafs back on February 6th. Curtis Lazar (2G), Zack Smith (1G + 1A) and Mark Stone (1G + 1A) also enjoyed multi-point nights for the Sens while Craig Anderson was beaten only once on 27 shots to earn the decision

You can watch the full highlights from that game below...

Sens TV was all over today's morning skate and have compiled the best pre-game quotes together just for you...

5. Broadcast
