After the morning skate, Paul MacLean told the media in attendance that Sergei Gonchar and Mike Lundin (who will wear #10) will both be in the lineup tonight against Carolina.

Lundin has finally recovered from his thumb injury and will make his Senators debut, and will skate alongside Gonchar, who has recovered from a bout of the flu that had him miss the team’s last 2 games.
Coming out of the lineup will be Patrick Wiercioch and Mark Borowiecki, meaning Andre Benoit will partner with Chris Phillips.
The forward lines will remain as they were against the Sabres:
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
Craig Anderson gets the start again, thinking we will probably see Ben Bishop on Saturday against the Jets. Or Tuesday against the Sabres….or Wednesday against the Penguins…
