The Sens open the season tonight, at home, versus the reigning regular season champs, the Capitals. It'll be the freshly-extended up against Holtby in net. No Karlsson, yet, for the good guys, but Brassard will be in the lineup. As will Logan Brown.
Noted pest Tom Wilson is suspended for the Caps, so that's nice. The Caps also just signed Alex Chiasson after his PTO, so look for him to get a hat trick in true Ottawa Senators tradition.

New this season at the CTC: A house band called the "Missing Chiclets". Hey, they're trying something new.
