Get set for tonight's 7 p.m. start in Newark against the New Jersey Devils with a look the Sens' projected line-up, starting goaltender and more...
Sens head coach D.J. Smith met with the media late on Wednesday afternoon and shared that he'll deploy the same game roster as Monday's loss in Carolina tonight but with a few different combinations up front. Colin White will move up to center the top line with Brady Tkachuk and Anthony Duclair but it's expected that Jean-Gabriel Pageau could see a good amount of ice-time as well as the coach shared that he'll be matched against the Devils' top line.
With a hectic November schedule, that includes three games in the next four nights, Smith stated that they'll need to use their forward depth to help spread out the work load.
"Every line has to be responsible and that's what we're looking for," he said. "We have a lot of games coming up here, we have to play four lines so we need to roll four through."
With no morning skate today, here's a look at the forward lines and defence pairings tonight:
Tkachuk - White - Duclair
Paul - Pageau - Brown
Namestnikov - Beaudin - Ryan
Chlapik - Tierney - Ennis
Chabot - Zaitsev
Brannstrom - Hainsey
Borowiecki - DeMelo
Craig Anderson (2-6-0) gets the call in net tonight for the Senators as the veteran goaltender looks to lock down his first win of the month. Anderson was called into action on Monday night in Raleigh, coming in in relief of Anders Nilsson. and made 20 saves in half a game's wotk against the Hurricanes.
White finding his groove
After missing nearly 3 weeks with hip flexor/groin injury, Colin White returned to action last weekend against the Hurricanes and has helped provide some offence down the middle. In two games played since being re-inserted into the line-up, White has a pair of points (1G, 1A) which has doubled his total for the season.

Smith credited White's return as a big boost to their overall team speed and the 22-year-old centre will look to extend his point streak to three games tonight in New Jersey.
