As we enter tonight's contest, the Sens are 11 points out of 8th. Think about that for a second. We need to make up 11 points, just to come in 8th in our conference. And Murray and Melnyk have the nerve to say we still have a chance. Please!
Anyways, back to actual on ice stuff, Mike Broduer was called up to back up Elliott, who starts again. With Kovalev out a week or so, Jim O'Brien has been called up as well. For some reason, Brian Lee is sitting now, in favor of Matt Carkner. Personally, I think Lee has earned the right to stay in the side, but perhaps they're trying to showcase Kuba? A guy can dream can't he?
So with that being said, here are the projected lines for tonight:
God our 2nd line is horrible.
Prediction: The Sens always have a tough time with the B's, especially in Boston, but luckily for us, the Bruins played last night in Pittsburgh, so they will be a bit tired. There's also a chance that Lucic will be sitting out, so that helps us out. The problem is we can't score and Tim Thomas owns us. Sens lose 3-1.
