Game Day 5: Sens vs Blue Jackets

by Craig Medaglia / Ottawa Senators

Here are 5 things you need to know before tonight's game as the Sens get set to face the Columbus Blue Jackets.

1. Line-up

Some line-up notes for tonight...

  • No line changes from the Detroit game on Monday.
  • One small change to the lines for tonight. Bobby Ryan and Mark Stone swapped places today during the morning skate so that appears to be the plan to start tonight's game.

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

2. Goalies

Craig Anderson is set to make his 7th start in the Sens' last 9 games tonight. Andy's save percentage on the season sits at .911 and his goals against average at 2.99. Still no updates on Andrew Hammond so Matt O'Connor will once again back him up tonight.

Curtis McElhinney gets the start for the Blue Jackets tonight.

3. Last meeting

These two teams last faced off against each other back on February 7th, 2015 in Ottawa with the Blue Jackets earning a 4-1 win. Not a pretty game for the Sens so the less said the better but mere days later the team embarked on a ridiculous run to the playoffs so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

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.

We're wearing the nicest alternate jerseys in the league tonight for #ThrowbackThursday. Plus you can grab $1 hot dogs and $1 small pops before 7 p.m. #comeearly #dressaccordingly
