Sens 2011 first round pick Matt Puempel will get his first taste of exhibition action tonight when Ottawa takes on the Habs in Montreal.

He's all clear to play now, however, and will look to make things happen in the Bell Centre.

Here's what Matt had to say...

Here's what Lazar had to say about tonight's game...

With one pre-season game under his belt thus far, Mika Zibanejad will be looking to build on a strong pre-season debut tonight when he gets the call to face the Montreal Canadiens. Mika will be centering the third line between Colin Greening and Erik Condra, though don't be surprised if he moves around a bit with the team experimenting with him on the wing as part of the top six.

Here's what Mika had to say about tonight's game...
