The Senators (or at least a group of hopefuls wearing Senators’ uniforms) fell 4-2 in Winnipeg last night, with a more NHL desinted group on the horizon tonight in Saskatoon where the Sens face the Leafs in their penultimate exhibition game.
One thing that has me wondering this morning is whether or not Guy Boucher is toying with the idea of dressing 7 defensemen on a regular basis. He did it the other night against the Habs, but that was also a day where he sent a message to a couple of players who were late to a team meeting by benching Cody Ceci and Bobby Ryan for the first period.
But looking at the lineup for tonight’s game, at least on paper, and it looks like they will dress 7 blueliners again. There are 12 forwards listed on the roster, but 1 of them is Mark Stone, who as of yesterday at least, wasn’t scheduled to undergo his baseline testing for concussion protocol until they get home Thursday. Unless between the end of practice and the time they put the roster out yesterday afternoon Stone had a miraculous breakthrough, it seems to me that he is a placeholder and the Sens will go with 11 forwards again.
Which actually kind of makes sense. The blueline has been much maligned, and this would give Boucher a lot of flexibility to deploy situation-ally. If your 5-6-7 is, lets say Borowiecki, Wideman and Chabot (in no particular order), then finding the right time to utilize 2 of the three would be easier with the option present. A lot of you might suggest that limiting Borowiecki to 0 minutes would be the best choice, but he does provide a physical presence and can kill some penalties so you don’t have to use Karlsson to do that in a perfect world.
New Leafs number-one Frederik Andersen will make his preseason debut in Saskatoon tonight versus the Ottawa Senators (9:30 p.m. EST, TSN 4 & 5).
Mike Babcock told News Talk 650 CKOM this morning that Andersen will be relieved of the net after the first period if he is too busy based on the shot count — an extra precaution to avoid reinjury in his first game back following his layoff. Andersen sustained an upper-body injury in an Olympic qualifying game for Team Denmark on September 2.
With Tyler Bozak and Nazem Kadri getting the night off, Babcock told CKOM that William Nylander will shift to center for tonight’s game, but clarified that he will be a winger to start the regular season. Auston Matthews will also line up down the middle in his second preseason appearance; with Nylander centering another line, Babcock will sample Mitch Marner, who will also feature tonight, on Matthews’ right wing.
