The Sens are set to face the Colorado Avalanche tonight and we've got 5 things to help get you ready.
Some line-up notes from the coach...
- The coach confirms that Patrick Wiercioch will return to the line-up tonight.
- To make room for a returning Wiercioch, Chris Wideman comes out of the line-up.
- The Sens also returned Nick Paul to Binghamton.
And here's our best guess at the Sens projected line-up for tonight...
Andrew Hammond is all set to make his first start for the Sens since January 22nd tonight against Colorado. The Hamburglar hasn't seen many games this season largely due to the play of Craig Anderson but brings Hammond sports a 3-5-2 record on the season and is looking for his first win since January 4th. The aforementioned Anderson backs him up.
No official news on who will start in goal yet for the Avalanche but my best guess would be Semyon Varlamov.
3. Last meeting
Rewind back to November 25th, 2015 in Colorado where Shane Prince's first 2 NHL goals helped power the Sens to a 5-3 win. Kyle Turris, Zack Smith and Mika Zibanejad also added goals in the game while Craig Anderson was sharp turning aside 40 of the 43 shots he faced.

4. Throwback Thursday
It's #ThrowbackThursday tonight which means the Sens will be sporting their Heritage Jerseys so if you are coming to the game please dress accordingly. You will probably also want to plan on coming a bit earlier since we've got "throwback" prices on hot dogs and small pops until 7 p.m.
Tonight's game will be available on TSN5 and RDS as well as on the radio at TSN 1200. Puck drop is set for 7:30 p.m.
