Here are the way the Ottawa Senators lined up for today’s pre-game skate, as tweeted by members of the media in attendance:

Mika Zibanejad – Kyle Turris – Daniel Alfredsson
Milan Michalek – Zack Smith – Jakob Silfverberg
Colin Greening – Peter Regin – Chris Neil
Erik Condra – Stephane Da Costa – Jim O’Brien
The Defense pairings:
Erik Karlsson – Marc Methot
Andre Benoit – Chris Phillips
Sergei Gonchar – Mark Borowiecki
It looks like Guillaume Latendresse (flu, whiplash) will remain out of the lineup and Kaspars Daugavins will be a healthy scratch in favour of Da Costa.
Zibanejad gets a prime opportunity to show he can be an offensive threat as he lines up on the top unit.
Patrick Wiercioch looks to be coming out in favour of Sergei Gonchar as the veteran draws back in after missing Sunday’s game with the flu.
