Both Andrei Markov and Mathieu Schneider won’t play tonight against Ottawa but are expected to suit up tomorrow against New York. At least this is the information I stole from the Gazette. Not having these two defencemen in the lineup is never great but not the end of the world, as the Senators are an old team, as you can see by this recent photo.
Jaroslav Halak is expected to start in goal.
Homogenized country singer and ex-American Idol champ Carrie Underwood is expected to be in Montreal to cheer on her big squeeze, Mike Fisher. The happy couple are seen here in the parking lot of the Carlingwood Shopping Centre in Ottawa, enjoying a brief time away from the glare of the bright lights.
