We're back to a split tonight as Mike Condon and Andrew Hammond are expected to share the responsiblities in net for the Sens. Condon last saw action in the team's second pre-season game against Toronto where he stopped 22 of the 24 Maple Leafs' shots he faced while Andrew Hammond gets set to play in his first contest since February 7th against the St. Louis Blues.

According to Postmedia's Bruce Garrioch, here's a look at the forward lines and defence pairings from this morning's team skate in PEI:

The audition continues up front for a few Sens' prospects as Logan Brown, Filip Chlapik and Alex Formenton will all play in tonight's game against the Devils. Each has impressed so far in training camp which is providing the coaching staff with a unique situation when it comes to sorting out the depth chart.

"I hate the word problem but it does become one in the sense that you have to make tough decisions," said Boucher about the battle for roster spots after Saturday's game. "One thing is for sure, when you have those types of problems they become major strengths whether it's in the short-term or in the long-term and we can't be more happy about that."

Where to Watch

It's an early start given that we're out on the East Coast so friendly reminder to tune in to Sportsnet ONE starting at 6 p.m. this evening. You can also roll the knob over to TSN 1200 to hear Dean Brown and Gord Wilson with the call from Prince Edward Island.
