It's game day! The Christmas break is over for the Senators and they're back in action tonight to take on the Boston Bruins. Can they keep their momentum after a 5-0 victory over the Penguins on Monday? Here are your story lines for tonight's game:
  • Mika Zibanejad missed the game against Pittsburgh with a case of the flu. He should be back in the lineup tonight after local Boston doctor Mark Recchi gave him the go-ahead to play.
It's not a very good hospital. You should see the nurses.
    • With Zibanejad drawing back into the lineup, Matt Kassian will likely continue his food tour of the Atlantic Division press boxes. Here he is sampling a Boston specialty, clam chowder:
    "Nice texture, good balance, just the right level of acidity - two fists up!"
      • Cory Conacher and Jean-Gabriel Pageau are both still in a jolly mood from the holiday break. Here they are waking up from their pre-game nap:
      Hey, it's still an upgrade on the hotels the B-Sens stay at.
        • Fresh off a shutout, Craig Anderson is expected to start tonight. Word is he got some new gear for Christmas that should help him get his game back to last year's levels:
        "You shouldn't have! Hey, are there any more of those buttertarts left?"
          • As the second half of the season starts, the Senators are going to need to keep getting strong performances from top-six players like Kyle Turris. We can only hope that after his performance in the Senators' Christmas video, he's able to keep his mind on hockey:
          "No, I'm not doing a dealership commercial. Tell them I don't get out of bed until I get the KD job."
            • Finally, there's stiff competition between Erik Condra and Chris Neil as both requested two front teeth from Santa this year. Word is the first one to score tonight gets a new bridge. The odds are in favour of Santa Claus keeping the two teeth, but you never know . . .
            "No, Chris, sweetie, look at the camera, not Mommy."
              Enjoy the game tonight!
