    GDT - Game #82: Sens @ Isles, Apr 9, 2017, 5:00pm

    Post by wprager on Sun Apr 09, 2017 8:47 am

    This is it. Last game of the regular season and nothing to play for. The Islanders have been officially eliminated and the Sens have clinched home ice; the only thing not yet set is whether they'll play the Leafs (who need a single point against Columbus) or the Bruins. With a win this late afternoon (another weird start time) the Senators will get to 100, so I guess that's something to play for.

    Lots of vets are expected to be rested today, and the team has recalled O'Connor, Englund and Paul. Trying to figure things out, looks like Phaneuf and Anderson will be getting the day off to walk around Central Park or whatever. Condon will get the start with O'Connor backing him up. Karlsson/Methot continue to rest/recover leaving the following on D: Ceci-Jokipaaka, Wideman-Boro, Harpur-Englund. Wait, did I just put Kevin on the top pairing?

    At center, if Turris and Brassard get the day off we're left with Pageau, Kelly, White and one of the "natural" centers who are playing wing (Wingels, Pyatt, DiDomenico). Perhaps Smith is ready for a tune up game before the playoffs. It gets more complicated to try to predict who will play and who will rest, but I'd bet on Neil playing perhaps his last game in a Sens jersey. Maybe Rayn coming back like Smith for a tune up game. Anyhow, have fun predicting the lineup.

    Go Sens Go!!!

    I didn't catch all the names they just mentioned of who stayed back in Ottawa and who went to Brooklyn, but Hoffman/Stone will not play (remained back in Ottawa) and Ryan/Neil will play.

    This looks like an exhibition game lineup. #Sens pic.twitter.com/L0Pphzym8s

    Didn't realized Varone was still with the team:

    MacArthur-Pageau-Ryan
    Dzingel-Varone-Burrows
    Wingels-White-Pyatt
    DiDomenico-Kelly-Neil

    That can't be right. Paul should be playing.

    Not sure where Bruce got that from, but Varone played last night with the B-Sens and there was nothing about his getting called up. So maybe Wingels as the 2LC and Paul on the wing:

    MacArthur-Pageau-Ryan
    Dzingel-Wingels-Burrows
    Paul-White-Pyatt
    DiDomenico-Kelly-Neil

    Yeah, these lines are borked. If Bobby plays today, I assume he was a healthy scratch yesterday.

    Could be Neil's last game ever in a Sens jersey, which is sad. Doesn't get much of a farewell tour!

    Well that line-up isn't very reassuring but maybe we don't need to win and it's best to see what some of these young guys can do.
    It's not like the isles line-up is all world either.

    I'll watch just to see what white can do

    Isles have nothing to play for. Sens still could get to 100.

    2-0 Islanders even though the Sens had 3 PP opportunities just in the first. I guess 100 was not to be.

    Guess I'll switch over to the Leafs game when I get back from the gym.
