Home opener tonight! Huzzah! I'm going to the game, so I'm pretty stoked. The Sens haven't lost a game to Detroit since October 11, 2003, five calendar years! But then again, there have only been two games since then.
A few notes on the game: As mentioned, Daniel Alfredsson will be out of the lineup. Dany Heatley will be captain. Jarkko Ruutu will be (or at least start) first-line right winger. Mike Fisher will return. Martin Gerber will start in nets.
