The hot hand

After defeating the Buffaslugs 5 -3 on Friday night, the Senators will again start Ray Emery between the pipes. Tonight's game against the Lightning should give a good indicator of how Rayzor is feeling about his game at this particular moment in time. Though they are at the basement of the Eastern Conference, the Lightning still boast some skilled forwards who should be able to test Emery.

The return of Anton Volchenkov last night should added some confidence to the Senators' defence corps, which resulted in Andrej Meszaros getting a goal and an assist against the Sabres.

Cody Bass got his first NHL goal last night. It seems curious to me that he would remain with the team while the capable Nick Foligno was returned to the AHL. Some have said that Bass brings more grit to his line than Foligno.

Enjoy the game tonight everybody. I'll be away covering University of Ottawa Gee-Gees women's basketball instead of watching my beloved Sens. Yay?
