Game Day Notes: Game #66 - Sens vs. Red Wings

by Craig Medaglia @craigmedaglia / Ottawa Senators

Get set for tonight's 7 p.m. start at Canadian Tire Centre against the Detroit Red Wings with the latest on the Sens' line-up, details on PEI Night and more...

Line-up notes

No line-up changes expected from Thursday's 5-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks but tonight's contest will see Thomas Chabot play in his 200th career NHL game. Chabot has appeared in 65 games this season recording 35 points (6G, 29A) and spoke a little bit about his milestone game following today's morning skate.

"It's gone by pretty quick," said Chabot about getting to game #200. "Knock on wood but I've been pretty lucky this year, we didn't get anything that would keep me away from the games so it's been fun."

Sens head coach D.J. Smith also met with the media earlier today to confirm his line-up and provided an update on both Anthony Duclair and Colin White who are currently sidelined with injuries.

"Duke's out and skated really well today but he's not 100% so we'll see for Tuesday. We won't put anyone in a position to make it worse so if he's not 100% he won't play," said Smith. "White is going really well as well so both will be questionable for Tuesday."

Here's how the line rushes look this morning:

Tkachuk - Norris - Ryan

Balcers - Tierney - Brown

Paul - Anisimov - Hawryluk

Boedker - Peca - Sabourin

Chabot - Hainsey

Reilly - Zaitsev

Englund - Jaros
