Game Day 5: Sens vs Oilers

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 Edmonton Oilers.

1. Line-up

Some line-up notes from the coach...

  • The coach confirms that Marc Methot will return to the line-up tonight.
  • To make room for a returning Methot, Jared Cowen comes out of the line-up.
  • For the second straight day Clarke MacArthur skated with the team in full equipment. MacArthur mentioned yesterday that if all goes well with his continued rehab he's targeting a March return.

And here's our best guess at the Sens projected line-up for tonight...

2. Goalies

Craig Anderson once again gets the nod in goal for the Sens tonight against Edmonton. Andy's record on the season sits at 20-16-4 while he's sporting a save percentage of 0.913. Andrew Hammond backs him up.

Cam Talbot gets the start for the Oilers tonight.

3. Last meeting

It's been almost a year since these teams last met with their most recent match-up being on Valentine's Day of 2015. Love was in the air for the Sens that game as they dropped a touchdown on the Oilers on their way to a 7-2 win at Canadian Tire Centre. Eight different players had multi-point efforts in that contest including Milan Michalek who lead the way offensively for the Sens with 2 goals and an assist and was named the game's first star.

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
