4. From the coach
Sens head coach Dave Cameron met with the media early this afternoon for some updates...
On the line-up changes for today:
All healthy bodies will play. Obviously Michalek's out (finger) so Chiasson's in. Methot is not back and Andy's starting.
On the potential for either Kyle Turris or Marc Methot to return before the All-Star Break:
I don't know if they're going to be in or not but I'd say Methot's more likely than Turris. At this point I'm not ready to say either/or is going to be in.
On Bobby Ryan's post-game comment's after Friday's game:
I don't know what the comments are but I like guys who makes those kind of comments because now they have to do it. You tell me that the check's in the mail it had better be in the mail. So I like those comments. I like guys stepping up and saying "for us to win we have to do this, this and this". Especially when they are guys who play big minutes. I like that.
Tonight's game will be available on TSN5 and RDS2 as well as on the radio at TSN 1200. Puck drop is set for 3 p.m.
