Finally the big boys (or at least some of them) get down to business as some of the Ottawa Senators travel to Toronto to face the Maple Leafs. With over 120 players in total in camp for both teams, rosters will not resemble those that will play in the regular season, but it will be a good opportunity for some youngster to make an impression and get some experience.
The Senators lineup will look something like this (according to TSN’s Brent Wallace via Twitter):
Filatov – Regin – Butler
Michalek – Zibanejad – Stone
Greening – Smith – Neil
Hoffman – Konopka – Lessard
Kuba – Karlsson
Wiercioch – Conboy
Rundblad – Cowen
Auld will start, and play the first half, and will be spelled by Lehner.
The Leafs lineup is not yet set, but will reportedly include the line of Grabovski – MacArthur – Kulemin and the likes of Nazem Kadri, Dion Phanuef, Mike Komisarek, and tough guys Jay Rosehill and Colton Orr.
With Konopka, Lessard, Neil, Rosehill and Orr all in the lineup and fighting for playing time, there could be a good chance of fireworks before too long.
It will also mark the debut of Paul MacLean behind the Ottawa bench, and despite the partial roster he will be looking to make a good first impression.
Unfortunately, the game is not available on Television, but you can tune into TEAM1200 at 5:00 for the pre-game show and the 7:00 puck drop.
