The weather is warming up, the sun is shining and with the return of vitamin D to your lives now that winter appears to have (finally) dissipated comes the return of The Red Zone at Scotiabank Place.

As you can see above, crews are hard at work putting together The Red Zone for its first game of the season tomorrow night against Washington. It will stay up through the end of the regular season and continuing as long as the Sens are playing hockey.

If you paid for a ticket to tonight's game, you were entertained. The pace was end-to-end, there was plenty of physicality, you saw a Jared Cowen return and a vintage Craig Anderson performance. It was fun.

From a hockey perspective, the Sens did leave something to be desired. At times they had lapses reminiscent of Friday's win over New Jersey, at others they looked like a force. Coach MacLean has stressed building to a level of consistency all season long, and, while it's still an ongoing process, the high points of this team certainly seem to indicate that they are a better unit from just a few weeks ago.

Had the power play been clicking as well as the penalty kill did tonight, it's safe to say that the victory would have been by a much larger margin. Alas, it was a one goal game and will give the Sens plenty to work on going forward as they get ready for a hot Washington team on Thursday.

Here's a Twitter rundown of what Coach had to say after the 3-2 win...

The Sens can move one step closer to securing a playoff berth tonight when they take on the Carolina Hurricanes and could put some distance between themselves and ninth place with the Winnipeg Jets also in action.

With yesterday's postponement, the Sens have gone back to the lineup they sported against the Devils last Friday. Matt Kassian was scheduled to check in against a big, tough Bruins team, but instead he will remain a healthy scratch and Guillaume Latendresse will reclaim his spot in the lineup.

The news of the day, of course, is Jared Cowen's return. He will take Andre Benoit's place along the blueline.

Here's how the Sens will line up to start...

It has been a long time coming for Jared Cowen. Just a few weeks ago it was believed that he would not be eligible to return this season. Tonight, he makes his return to the Senators' lineup after undergoing surgery on his hip.

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...
