Game Day Notes: Game #30 - Sens @ Flyers

by Craig Medaglia @craigmedaglia / Ottawa Senators

It's a matinee in Philly and we've got the latest Sens news and notes before today's 1 p.m. start against the Flyers.

Projected line-up

With no morning skate and a 1 p.m. puck drop, we've still got a few question marks when it comes to the Sens line-up today. Head coach D.J. Smith met with the media this morning in Philadelphia and shared that Nick Paul, who exited Wednesday's game with a neck strain, as well as Cody Golobef and Max Lajoie on the backend will all take part in the warm-up and they'll sort out who's in and out after th pre-game skate.

"We've got a few questionable guys that we'll find out about after warm-up," said Smith. "So we're going to have 7 defence and 13 forwards in warm-up and we'll make that decision right after."

For a refresher, here's what the Sens forward lines and defence pairings looked like in Edmonton:

Tkachuk - L. Brown - Duclair 

Paul - Pageau - C. Brown

Namestnikov - Anisimov - White

Beaudin - Tierney - Ennis

 

Chabot - Hainsey 

Borowiecki - Zaitsev 

Lajoie - DeMelo

In goal

Craig Anderson (5-8-0) will make his second consecutive start for the Sens today after a strong showing against the Oilers on Wednesday night. Anderson stopped 24 of the 26 shots he faced in Edmonton to pick up his first win of the month. Anders Nilsson draws back-up duty since Marcus Hogberg was returned to Belleville.

Previous meeting

These teams met for the first time this season in Ottawa on November 15th where the Sens earned a 2-1 decision over the Flyers. Second period goals from Tyler Ennis and Filip Chlapik ended up being all the offence the Senators would need as Nilsson shut the door down the stretch to pick up the win.
