4:00 PM: Sens head coach Dave Cameron spoke with the media today ahead on tonight's game against the Kings...
On any changes to the line-up against the Kings:
Colin Greening's in. Puempel's out.
On last night's win being a confidence booster:
I hope so. You take your good games and try to build on them.
On the younger players stepping up in the place of veterans:
That's what you hope for with your young players is that they can bring that energy and enthusiasm but before they can do that they have to obviously be able to play and earn the trust so they get that ice-time. It goes hand-in-hand. They've been good for a long time.
Cody Ceci also took some time to speak with the media and you can catch his pre-game comments here...

9:45 AM: The Ottawa Senators look for their fourth win in a row as they visit the Los Angeles Kings tonight. Puck drop is set for 10:30 p.m.
The Sens enter tonight's game after a solid effort in Anaheim last night that saw goaltender Andrew Hammond earn his first shutout and third consecutive win to start his NHL career. Erik Condra, Mika Zibanejad and Kyle Turris provided more than enough offence for the Sens as they blanked the Ducks 3-0. The Senators improved their record to 25-23-10 and currently sit 11th in the Eastern Conference just 7 points back of the Boston Bruins for the final playoff spot with 2 games in hand.
Los Angeles continued their winning ways on Tuesday night as they beat the Detroit Red Wings 1-0. Justin Williams scored the lone goal for the Kings while Jonathan Quick turned aside all 20 shots he faced to earn the shutout victory. The Kings are currently in the midst of an 8 game winning streak and boast a record of 29-18-12 good for 7th in the Western Conference.
These two teams faced off in Ottawa back on December 11th with the Kings earning a 5-3 victory over the Sens. Full highlights from that game can be found here...
Also, this was the game that Bobby Ryan did this...
The Sens will be meeting ahead of tonight's game with the team's morning skate being optional. I will have plenty of updates to follow including, but not limited to, lineup changes, players' thoughts, Sens TV videos, Instagram goodness and more.
