Game Day 5: Sens @ Rangers

by Craig Medaglia / Ottawa Senators

The Sens are in New York tonight set to face the Rangers and we've got 5 things to help you get ready for puck drop.

1. Line-up

Some line-up notes for tonight...

  • Dave Cameron said this morning that Kyle Turris will be a game-time decision tonight after leaving yesterday's game against the Islanders after falling awkwardly. The injury apparently looked worse than it actually is though and the coach said he doesn't expect his top centre to miss much time if any. Keep an eye on our Twitter for any updates that may come on Turris' availability for tonight.
  • Should Turris be unavailable for tonight's game it's possible that the Sens deploy a line-up similar to Thursday's game against the Blackhawks which saw 11 forwards and 7 defenseman used.

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

2. Goalies

Craig Anderson is set to start his 11th straight tonight in New York. Andy is riding a pair of wins an has been stellar over his string of consecutive starts. Andrew Hammond isn't quite ready to return to the line-up yet so once again Chris Driedger backs up.

Henrik Lundqvist looks to be in line to start in goal tonight for the Rangers.

3. Last meeting

It was a low scoring affair when these teams faced off earlier this season with the Rangers leaving Ottawa with a 2-1 shootout win. Erik Karlsson scored the lone goal for the Sens in the loss and Craig Anderson stopped 33 of the 34 shots he faced.
