Updated 1:40 p.m. – Senators center Mike Fisher did participate in the morning skate but has been ruled out of today’s game. The Senators second line will now be Chris Kelly -Antoine Vermette – Jesse Winchester.
Updated 1:14 p.m. – A source told me Bissonnette not Thomas will play. At least that’s the way it looked in the morning skate.
Ruslan Fedotenko-Sidney Crosby-Miroslav Satan
Jordan Staal-Evgeni Malkin-Tyler Kennedy
Matt Cooke-Max Talbot-Pascal Dupuis
Paul Bissonnette-Jeff Taffe-Eric Godard
Orpik – Letang
Gill – Scuderi
Eaton – Sydor
Scratches – Bill Thomas & D Alex Goligoski
Starting Goalie: Marc Andre Fleury
Petr Sykora will miss today’s game with a sore groin. Tyler Kennedy will replace him on the second line. Not a big fan of Alex Goligoski being a healthy scratch. Goligoski earned a spot in the top 6.
