PreGame: Senators vs Blue Jackets

The Senators have recalled Jim O’Brien from Binghamton this morning.  Either a member of the team has experienced an injury, they want an extra forward around or some sort of move is coming today.  Hold on to your seats.

11:58 Update: Well, we now know why Jim O’Brien was called up this morning.  Veterans Jarkko Ruutu and Filip Kuba will be sitting out this evening, while Brian Lee and Jim O’Brien are in.  Brian Elliott gets the start.

Clouston is  using the cap space that Spezza’s injury provides to send a message to this club.  Either play to your potential or you’ll be watching from the press box.  This team cannot affort to have any passengers as every game is extremely important.  It’ll be interesting to see how the team responds.

Here are the line combos:

Foligno-Fisher-Alfredsson
Michalek-Kelly-Neil
Shannon-Regin-Kovalev
Smith-Winchester-O’Brien
Phillips-Karlsson
Campoli-Carkner
Gonchar-Lee
