Gameday Preview Bits - 4.20.2013

We're two hours away from the biggest game of the year for the Sens and you're no doubt itching to get going too. With that, let's get you caught up to speed and prep you for the Battle of Ontario (5th edition).

Follow along.

Up top we have today's Gameday Goodie with Sergei Gonchar. Gonch became the all-time highest scoring Russian defenceman a couple of nights ago, a fitting accomplishment for what has been an excellent career dating back to his time with the Washington Capitals. It's fair to say that the Sens would be in a much different place had he not stepped up big in the absence of Erik Karlsson and to reach that milestone is something truly fantastic.

Next up is Gord Wilson's Game Preview. The Leafs come in to this game slumping and the Sens are looking for their fifth straight win. If Ottawa can take the two points tonight, they'll be that much closer to a playoff spot and would leapfrog Toronto in the standings.

Take a look.

Zack Smith spoke to the media ahead of tonight's game with the Leafs, reflecting on the season series thus far and what this means for the Sens season.

Coach MacLean had his usual pregame media availability today.
