9:30 AM: Sens head coach Dave Cameron met with the media yesterday and you can catch all his comments below courtesy of Sens TV...

On Alex Chiasson missing practice:

Yeah. He's hurt. Day-to-day.

On if Robin Lehner will start in place of a still injured Craig Anderson:


On any other line-up changes:

I'm going to change my D but I haven't talked to them yet so I can't tell you about it.

On if Legwand will return to the line-up in place of Chiasson:

Yes. I have no healthy extra forwards now. I have 12 forwards.

On the loss to Dallas:

You have to move on. Win or lose you have to move on. My experience has taught me that when you're bad and you got back and watch the game, you're not as bad as you thought you were. And when you're real good, you're not as good as you thought you were either. So there's always a balance there but you have to let it go. One way or the other...let it go. It's about putting in the work to get better every day.

Bobby Ryan also spoke with the media yesterday and you can watch his scrum here...

8:30 AM: The Ottawa Senators get back to action on Saturday afternoon when they host the Arizona Coyotes at Canadian Tire Centre. Puck drop is set for 3:00 p.m.

The Senators are coming off a 6-3 loss to the Dallas Stars on Thursday night. Mika Zibanejad, Bobby Ryan and Alex Chiasson provided the scoring for Ottawa while Robin Lehner made 35 stops in defeat. The Sens currently sport a record of 19-19-9 and sit 12th in the Eastern Conference.

The Coyotes travel to Ottawa after a 3-1 road win against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night. Arizona rallied in the third period to score three unanswered goals to hand the Leafs their 8th straight loss. Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Martin Hanzal and Sam Gagner marked for the Coyotes while Mike Smith stopped 24 of 25 to earn the decision. Arizona's record now sits at 17-25-6.
