It won't be a surprise to anyone tonight that Craig Anderson will start in goal tonight when the Sens are introduced for their final regular season home game in 2013.

It's no secret that we here inside Scotiabank Place have a high opinion of the Sens Army. Go figure, right?

Well, during last night's game vs. Washington, Sens fans upped the ante even more with their "Money on the Board" cause, which donates money to the Sens Foundation based on happenings that take place in Sens games.

Awesome, right?

There's no official count of which NHL team is best represented on Twitter, but the Sens stack up very well league-wide when it comes to expressing themselves in 140 characters or less.

The team's Twitter count went up one last night when man, myth, legend, captain Daniel Alfredsson joined the social network sweeping the world one hashtag at a time.

You want to see a team that knows it got the job done? Look no further than the video below.

Sens TV got the exclusive footage last night when the Sens clinched their playoff berth and followed the team into the room for the post-game cheers and speech from the captain.

In the immortal words of Bob Cole, "EVERYTHING IS HAPPENING!"

Not only have we seen Erik Karlsson activate a Twitter account and return from an Achilles injury, the team could potentially clinch playoff spot tonight and we still have the home finale to look forward to this Saturday night, but we could still hit the motherload of Ottawa internet phenomena yet.

Daniel Alfredsson will be joining Twitter. You may now remove your jaw from the ground.

The Ottawa Senators will have a chance to clinch tonight and they'll take the task on using a lineup they haven't been able to put together all season long thanks to the returns of Erik Karlsson and Jared Cowen.

There will only be one change from Monday's game against the Penguins as Patrick Wiercioch checks out and Karlsson takes his place. The reserves, outside of that one switch, remain the same from last game.

The Sens have undergone some massive line shuffling by the looks of things however, as they try to spark some offence from a lineup that has two goals total in its last two games.

Here's how the Sens will look to start.
