Game 6: Tampa in Ottawa Preview

Our boys are up in Ottawa tonight to face the Senators.

Enemy Blog: Sens at Land's End

The Senators lost their game to the Pens on Tuesday night 4-1, ending their 3 game win streak. The Lightning have won the last two and are looking to make it three. There is a switchup in net tonight with Smith back in and Nitty on the bench. The Lightning keep saying that Smith is healthy, but he'll need a strong game to show me that. The stats for road games and games against the Senators is pretty awful, being 0-5-3 in their last eight road games, and 3-16-2 against Ottawa.

What do I know about the Senators these days? Um I know that Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher are still together. I like the addition of Milan Michalek, since I liked him in San Jose, but for in the trade for Dany Heatley, I guess Ottawa got the best they could get with his antics. Cheechoo doesn't count for me, because his stats was really a product of being on a line with Joe Thornton.

Quote of the day:

"The first two periods I don't think we played Tampa Bay hockey," Tocchet said. "A little bit too much river boat gambling and trading chances for chances."
-Lightning website

Tocchet should really stay away from the gambling references, don't want to give anyone the wrong idea or anything.

Line-up Notes:
Mike Smith is back as the starter in goal for the Lightning, and Kurtis Foster is back on defense coming back from his lower body injury.

Game time: 7:30pm ET. On SUN, and TSN!

Updates to follow if they happen.
This is the first game of their two game road trip before 5 days of no Lightning hockey, enjoy this while you can.
