Game Day 5: Sens vs Wild

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 Minnesota Wild.

1. Line-up

No changes to the line-up tonight so the Sens are expected to ice the same lines and pairings as they did against the Leafs on Saturday. Matt Puempel and Patrick Wiercioch are the extras once again tonight.

If you are coming to the game you may want to get here in time for warm-up (approximately 7 p.m.) so you can see the boys get loose in these beauties...

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

2. Goalies

Craig Anderson will once again get the start for the Sens tonight. Andy's current record sits at 28-21-4 on the season and he sports a save percentage of 0.916 and a goals against average of 2.81. Andrew Hammond will back him up tonight.

Devan Dubnyk starts in goal for the Wild tonight.

3. Last meeting

Fire up your time machines because it's been over a year since these teams last faced each other. Way back on March 3rd, 2015, the Wild ended the Sens 5-game winning streak with a 3-2 shootout win. Mika Zibanejad and Bobby Ryan provided the offence for the Sens in defeat.
