Game Day Notes: Game #7 - Sens @ Coyotes

by Craig Medaglia @craigmedaglia / Ottawa Senators

The Sens are in Glendale getting set for tonight's game against the Arizona Coyotes and we've got all the latest pre-game notes and line-up details you need before our 7 p.m. puck drop.

Projected line-up

Sens head coach D.J. Smith met with the media late this afternoon and confirmed that he'll go with the same group as he did on Thursday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Golden Knights. That means that injured centre Artem Anisimov will miss his third consecutive game but Smith hinted that he could be nearing a return.

"He's real close. We thought he could play today," said Smith. "He'll likely play in Dallas."

In goal

The coach confirmed that Craig Anderson (1-3-0) is back between the pipes for the Sens tonight against the Coyotes. Anderson has been steady this season for the Senators and sports a .906% save percentage after 4 starts to begin 2019-20.

Previous meeting

These teams last squared off way back on January 22nd, 2019 at Canadian Tire Centre where the visiting Coyotes earned a 3-2 victory thanks to a 3-point effort from Vinnie Hinostroza. Anderson was solid in goal for the Senators stopping 30 of the 33 shots he faced in defeat.

"It's never fun when you lose, and I think having a couple losses here definitely hurts," Anderson said post-game. "But I think the way we've been playing, we've been in the game, we've been right there, it could've gone either way, a bounce here, a bounce there, so overall we've got to be pretty satisfied that we're in the game and we've got ourselves a chance."
