Lined Up: Game #4 vs. Penguins

by Craig Medaglia @craigmedaglia / Ottawa Senators

Sens head coach Guy Boucher provided some injury updates for his line-up prior to Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Starting with Alex Burrows, who left Game 3 with an injury and did not return, the coach confirmed that he's still waiting to make a final decision on his winger's availability for tonight.

"It's not as bad as we thought," said Boucher at his morning media availability. "We're going to go back and see with the therapist, he was doing treatment there, we'll see if he's okay for tonight. I mean, if he's not, we're okay and we've got enough guys ready to go but we're not talking about a long-term thing."

Tweet from @Senators: The coach confirms that Alex Burrows will be a game-time decision for Game 4.

Someone who has been missing "long-term" popped up for the optional skate this morning and although Mark Borowiecki won't be available for Game 4, he continues to make progress towards a return in these playoffs.

"Obviously, he's a hammer," said Boucher of his rugged blueliner. "Once he gets back in the lineup we'll have his strengths on the ice but for now, we have the guys that we've got and they're doing really good."

So based on what we know, here's a look at the Sens projected line-up for Game 4...

 

In Goal

Craig Anderson has been maginificent in his 3 starts during the Eastern Conference Final surrendering just one goal in each game so far. Anderson's individual stats certainly tell the story as the Sens goaltender has a very stingy .964 save percentage against the Penguins this post-season to go along with a 0.98 goals against average.

At the other end of the rink, the Penguins will hand the crease duty over to Matt Murray for Game 4. Murray, who amassed a 32-10-4 record during the regular season, got his first taste of playoff action this year in relief of Marc-Andre Fleury in Game 3 on Wednesday. Murray was orignally sidelined during the team's warm-up for Game 1 of their first round series against the Columbus Blue Jackets and was able to eventually return in a supporting role late in the second round.
