With just seven games remaining on the schedule, the Sens are in Boston for their fifth and final matchup of the regular season with the Bruins tonight.
The Sens and Bruins have fought each other tooth and nail this season as all four games have been decided by a single goal with two of those games requiring an extra five minutes or shootout. Boston could clinch a playoff spot with a win tonight while the Sens could make their lives much easier with a win of their own. It will be a big test for both teams.
One lineup change for the Sens tonight as Matt Kassian checks back in with Guillaume Latendresse checking out. We'll see if this impacts anything tomorrow when Carolina comes to town.
Here's how the Sens will look to start...
Michalek - Turris - Alfredsson
Conacher - Zibanejad - Silfverberg
Greening - Pageau - Condra
Kassian - Smith - Neil
Methot - Gryba
Wiercioch - Gonchar
Phillips - Benoit
The Bruins could be looking at an injection of life into their lineup tonight with the potential return of Patrice Bergeron who has been out with a concussion. The B's have struggled of late and could certainly use what Bergeron brings. He skated this morning on the team's top line. They'll still be without Brad Marchand.
Here's how they stand to take the ice...
Lucic - Bergeron - Seguin
Campbell - Krejci - Jagr
Paille - Kelly - Horton
Daugavins - Peverley - Thornton
Chara - Boychuk
Bartkowski - Seidenberg
Hamilton - McQuaid
The Sens will look for their first win in Boston since a 1-0 shutout win on February 28, 2012 when the puck drops Monday night.
