PreGame: Avalanche vs Senators Oct 13



The Senators took their pregame skate at SBP this morning.  Jason Spezza made his return, while Jesse Winchester donned a grey sweater and took part in drills.  Afterwards, Paul MacLean revealed that Bobby Butler and Brian Lee are back in the lineup, while Erik Condra & Zenon Konopka are out.  The Senators will play with 7 defencemen this evening, as MacLean hopes to manage their minutes  better.

Here are the Senator lines:

Greening-Spezza-Zibanejad, Michalek-Da Costa-Alfredsson, Neil-Regin-Foligno, Butler-Smith

D pairings: Cowen-Gonchar, Kuba-Karlsson, Rundblad-Phillips, Lee
