    Storylines

    Sens

    * Losers of three in a row, the Sens look to right the ship against an Islanders team in the same boat.

    * The Senators sent J.G. Pageau down to Binghamton (AHL) on Oct. 31st.

    * The Sens will look to put October behind them, as they lost four of their final five games in the month.

    * Jason Spezza leads the Sens with twelve points.

    * Robin Lehner makes his third start of the season.


    Islanders

    * The Isles are in a very similar situation as the Sens- looking to move on from a forgettable October. The Isles finished off the month on a 1-3-1 skid.

    * The Isles shook things up big time this past week, trading Matt Moulson and sizable fortune in draft pick value to Buffalo for Thomas Vanek. Obviously GM Garth Snow thinks they can be a contender...

    * John Tavares really is that good.



    LINES
    (subject to change)


    Thomas Vanek - John Tavares - Kyle Okposo
    P.M. Bouchard - Frans Nielsen - Josh Bailey
    Michael Grabner - Peter Regin - Cal Clutterbuck
    Matt Martin - Casey Cizikas - Brock Nelson
    Travis Hamonic - Andy MacDonald
    Matt Donovan - Radek Martinek
    Thomas Hickey - Matt Carkner
    Evgeni Nabokov




    Corey Conacher - Jason Spezza - Chris Neil
    Clarke MacArthur - Kyle Turris - Bobby Ryan
    Milan Michalek - Zack Smith - Mika Zibanejad
    Colin Greening - Derek Grant - Erik Condra
    Chris Phillips - Erik Karlsson
    Marc Methot - Patrick Wiercioch
    Jared Cowen - Eric Gryba
    Robin Lehner

    Keys To The Game

    Ottawa must shut down Tavares and his linemates.
    The Islanders will as usual rely heavily on Jonny T.'s line for offensive production.

    Nielsen's outscoring Tavares, but the Okposo/Tavares/Vanek line could cause havoc for our team if their defensive woes haven't sorted themselves out at all yet.

    Need Spezza and Karlsson to come up big this game. I like the chances that this happens.

    5 - 2 for Ottawa.

    At least keep Phillips away from playing with Karlsson.

    Must win game tonight. If we lose the next few the season will be over before it's even really began.

    I thought Paulrus had set up different lines yesterday, with Neil being on Line 1, and they were going to be the ones used for tonight's game.

    There's really no point in playing the season anymore if we lose the next few games then right?

    You're right, if we keep on losing we will be just fine. I really like the playoff chances of a 4-9-2 team.
