Preview

In the less-than-two weeks since the last time the Bruins and Senators faced off, not a lot has changed. Ottawa has only won one game since then - Friday night's game against the Rangers - and their team is still composed mostly of former AHLers. Despite that, they have the second-best PK in the league (behind Boston) and a PP that is slightly better than the Bruins'. Erik Karlsson was injured several weeks ago, and he still leads the team in goals with six; just behind that mark are Daniel Alfredsson, Jim O'Brien, and Mika Zibanejad with five goals apiece.

David Dziurzynski is out after being knocked the fuck out by Frazer McLaren; Robin Lehner got his first win of the season; and Milan Michalek is back from injury and has played two games so far. Other than that, pretty much status quo in Ottawa.

For the Bruins, Jordan Caron is back and already showing up on the score sheet - he tallied an assist on Chris Kelly's goal on Saturday against the Flyers. Awesome to see him contribute so quickly, and make his linemates look better almost immediately. The Bergeron line is on absolute fire, and the defense looked great against Philadelphia on Saturday as well. It remains to be seen if the team can maintain the pace they're on right now, but for now, things look good.

It'll likely be Lehner vs. Tuukka Rask in net tonight.
