Lined Up: Game #5 @ Penguins

by Craig Medaglia @craigmedaglia / Ottawa Senators

Here's everything we know about the Sens line-up before Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Sens head coach Guy Boucher hinted that some line-up changes could come after the team takes warm-up this afternoon but wouldn't eloborate on any player in particular. He did specify that Mark Borowiecki and Alex Burrows continue to make progress in their recovery but neither will be available for Game 5. Borowiecki has recently rejoined the team on the ice after a lengthy layoff and is nearing to a return but that won't come today.

"No. We decided not to," said Boucher of Borowiecki at his pre-game media availability in Pittsburgh. "He's closer but we thought every day we can buy time, we will."

In Goal

Craig Anderson makes his 17th start of these playoffs today after recording a 10-6 record to date. Anderson is coming off a tough loss in Game 4 but has only suffered back-to-back defeats once this post-season in Games 3 and 4 against the Rangers in the second round. Anderson had a spectacular showing the last time Senators played in Pittsburgh during this series stopping 28 of 29 shots in a 1-0 defeat.

 

The Penguins turned to Matt Murray in Game 4 and he had an immediate impact picking up a 3-2 decision on Friday night. In a little over 5 periods against the Senators this series, Murray has only been beaten 3 times on 46 shots.
