Gameday Preview Bits - 4.16.2013

It's gameday in Ottawa (been a while since that was the case) as the Sens get ready to play host to the Carolina Hurricanes at Scotiabank Place.

With roughly two hours to puck drop, let's get you caught up to speed on the news of the day.

Up top we have Gord Wilson's Game Preview. With the Sens currently sitting sixth, they will need all the points they can get to fully lock down a playoff position in the next two weeks. Ottawa could realistically finish anywhere between fifth and out of the playoffs and every point is a big one. With 14th place Carolina in town, there is an opportunity to solidify their ground.

Next up we have video from Jared Cowen who makes his return to the lineup after undergoing hip surgery back in November. Needless to say he's pretty fired up about it.

Head Coach Paul MacLean passed along pertinent info for the team ahead of tonight's game during his usual media availability.
