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 ZibanejadKyle TurrisDaniel Alfredsson

Milan MichalekZack SmithJakob Silfverberg

Colin GreeningPeter ReginChris Neil

Erik CondraStephane 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…
