With the postponement of last night's game in Boston, Craig Anderson will have the opportunity to start at home on Tuesday when the Sens take on the Carolina Hurricanes.

With just seven games remaining on the schedule, the Sens are in Boston for the fifth and final matchup of the regular season with the Bruins tonight.

The Sens and Bruins have fought each other tooth and nail this season as all four games have been decided by a single goal with two of those games requiring an extra five minutes or shootout. Boston could clinch a playoff spot with a win tonight while the Sens could make their lives much easier with a win of their own. It will be a big test for both teams.

One lineup change for the Sens tonight as Matt Kassian checks back in with Guillaume Latendresse checking out. We'll see if this impacts anything tomorrow when Carolina comes to town.

Here's how the Sens will look to start...

With Olympic projections picking up steam across the hockey world, it seems certain that the Sens will be well represented on the international stage (assuming NHLers are able to play).

Let's assume that they do go. Team Sweden should have a fairly Sens-heavy roster with the likes of Erik Karlsson, Jakob Silfverberg and potentially Daniel Alfredsson who you would presume are all locks. Mika Zibanejad could very well have played his way into the discussion with his development this year and it looks like Robin Lehner will also be in the mix to join the team.

Let's try this again, shall we? Milan Michalek is officially healthy enough to make his return to the lineup after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery on March 19.

When he is officially plugged back in, it'll be his second return to the lineup this season and, hopefully, a more permanent one after opting not to have the surgery back in February. He played in two games at the mid point of this season after sitting out for roughly a month before the injury returned and surgery was necessary.

We're closing in on puck drop in Philly and with that it's time to get you caught up on the news of the day.

The team is looking to put a five game losing streak behind them and two points tonight would be a big step for the Sens who are hoping to lock down a playoff spot sooner rather than later.

The Sens make their second trip of the season to Philadelphia tonight and will look to knock off the Flyers for the first time this season in what will be a crucial game.

Ottawa now sits in a tie with the Rangers and Islanders at the bottom of the playoff standings with 44 points apiece, though the Sens have done it in one less game and sit in sixth after the tiebreaker. They have played two consecutive games now where they've clearly out-chanced the opponent. If they maintain that level of play, you'd have to think something will give soon.

Two lineup changes tonight as Jean-Gabriel Pageau steps into a spot on the third line while Robin Lehner gets the start for the first leg of the back-to-back, saving Craig Anderson for Friday in New Jersey.

Here's how the Sens will look to start...
