Game Day Notes: Game #27 - Sens @ Flames

by Craig Medaglia @craigmedaglia / Ottawa Senators

Get set for tonight's game in Calgary with a look at the Sens' projected line-up, starting goalie and more...

Projected line-up

A few changes to the Sens' line-up tonight after a disappointing start to their trip in Minnesota yesterday. Up front, J.C. Beaudin will check back into active duty tonight in Calgary while Logan Brown comes out to make room.

"It's more about the back-to-back," said Sens head coach D.J. Smith about Brown being a healthy scratch tonight. "I also wanted to get Beaudin back in because I didn't want him to sit very long. I think he's come along really nicely and I wasn't sure how Anisimov would feel on the back-to-back but he says he feels good so my plan all along was to take one of them out, it was just a matter of who."

On defence it's still a little more up in the air as Smith shared with the media this afternoon that Max Lajoie is expected to take the line-up and could play tonight against the Flames, it's still not certain who would come out as a result.

With no morning skate, here's my best guess at the Sens' projected line-up tonight against the Flames:

Tkachuk - Tierney - Duclair 

Paul - Pageau - White

Namestnikov - Anisimov - C Brown

Chlapik - Beaudin - Ennis

 

Chabot - Hainsey 

Borowiecki - Zaitsev 

Brannstrom - DeMelo

Lajoie*

In goal

Marcus Hogberg (0-0-0) gets his first NHL start this season tonight with Craig Anderson sidelined for about a week. Hogberg appeared in 4 games for the Senators in 2018-19 where he compiled a record of 0-2-1. Anders Nilsson will back him up against the Flames.

Previous meeting

Tonight marks the first game between the Sens and Flames this season so we're going to rewind all the back to March 21st, 2019 where Calgary dropped a 5-1 result on the visiting Senators at Scotiabank Saddledome. Dylan DeMelo's 4th goal of the year got the Sens on the board first that night but the Flames going on a run and scoring 5 unanswered goals was really uncalled for.
