It's a late one in Vancouver tonight and we've got everything you need to know before the puck drops against the Canucks at 10 p.m.
Just one change is expected for tonight's line-up in Vancouver and that's Logan Brown checking back in for active duty. Brown was a healthy scratch on Saturday in Calgary but D.J. Smith shared that it had more to do with it being the first of two back-to-back series on their current, lengthy 5-game road trip and he's looking out for the younger players experiencing this grind.
As a result of Brown's return, J.C. Beaudin and Mikkel Boedker will be the extra forward tonight while no changes are expected to the defence pairings.
With that, here's a look at the Sens' projected line-up in Vancouver:
Tkachuk - L. Brown - Duclair
Paul - Pageau - C. Brown
Namestnikov - Anisimov - White
Chlapik - Tierney - Ennis
Chabot - Hainsey
Borowiecki - Zaitsev
Brannstrom - DeMelo
Anders Nilsson (7-6-1) is back between the pipes for the Senators and will face off against his old team tonight. Nilsson was acquired from the Canucks midway through last season and, despite a rough outing on Friday night against the Wild, has been very good for Ottawa and carries a .917 sv% in 2019-20 into tonight's contest.

In the mood for something a little lighter as we press forward to tonight's late start? Well yesterday, Sens defenceman Mark Borowiecki shared that he foiled a robbery while in Vancoucer's Gastown District on Monday and helped to return a stolen backpack to it's rightful owner by dispatching the thief off their bicycle.
Anyways, in honour of our real-life superhero we made this for him:
It was a track meet the last times these two teams met in Vancouver with the home side earning a 7-4 victory. The Canucks jumped out to a 5-0 lead before the Sens rattled off 4 unanswered, third period goals of their own. Dylan DeMelo led the way offensively with a trio of assists while Anders Nilsson allowed 6 goals on 39 shots in defeat.
