Game Day 5: Sens vs Bruins

by Craig Medaglia @craigmedaglia / Ottawa Senators

The Boston Bruins are in town for tonight's Throwback Thursday game and we've got 5 things you should probably know before the puck drops at 7:30 p.m.

1. Starting Goalies

Starting to sound like a broken record but Craig Anderson once again gets the start in goal for the Sens. Anderson's record on the season currently sits at 9-4-1 and he's been instrumental in his team's success early in the season.

At the other end of the rink, it looks like Tuukka Rask will start in net for the Bruins. Rask currently sits at or near the top of every goaltending category this season so the Sens will once again have their work cut out for them.


2. Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday games are back this season which means the Sens will be wearing their beautiful heritage jerseys tonight against the Bruins. Keep an eye out for Craig Anderson's retro mask tonight as well which is a tribute to former Sens netminder Damian Rhodes.

It's all throwback prices until 7 p.m. so come early and grab yourself some $1 hot dogs or $1 small pops.


3. Projected line-up

It looks like Bobby Ryan will be good to make a return to the Sens' line-up tonight against the Bruins. Ryan has been dealing with a broken finger for about a week and has not played since last Thursday's game against the Predators. In other roster related news, Fredrik Claesson has been recalled from Binghamton but isn't expected to draw in tonight. Here's how the lines and pairing are shaping up.


4. From the coach

On carrying the momentum the offence generated last game in to tonight:

The one thing for me that has to stay is our quality scoring chances. That has to stay. It's been there for a long time now, it's just the poise, the presence in front of the goaltender and the poise around the net that we needed to improve which we did last game.

5. Broadcast

We've got ourselves a 7:30 p.m. start tonight at Canadian Tire Centre and you can catch the game on TSN5 and RDS2.
