11:00 AM: Here's what Paul MacLean had to say ahead of this afternoon's game...

On the lineup:

Erik Condra is going to play and we're going to take Matt Kassian out.

On Bobby Ryan having the green light:

To the best of my knowledge at this time of day, yes…he should be playing.

On the last Columbus matchup:

We won. We were on the road, it was a good game for us. I thought we played a real consistent game and we came home. We didn't play real good against Philadelphia obviously but we want to build on the Boston game and come here and really play well for 60 minutes.

10:00 AM: Meet Norman. He's a big Sens fan. Probably quite literally the biggest in the world.

9:30 AM: The Ottawa Senators will look to keep their momentum going forward when they take on the Columbus Blue Jackets this afternoon in Ottawa.

The Sens are coming off of a solid 4-2 win over the Boston Bruins which moved their record for the month of November to 4-1-2. Today's matchup between the Blue Jackets and Sens will be their second in 12 days with Ottawa taking the first by a 4-1 score.

The Blue Jackets have struggled to this point in the season and find themselves in the bottom of the Metropolitan Division through 19 games. To this point they have put together a 6-10-3 record, which includes a 2-4-2 mark away from home.

Paul MacLean will address the media at 10:30 AM ahead of the 1:30 PM puck drop and I'll have plenty of updates to follow including, but not limited to, lineup changes, players' thoughts on tonight's game, Sens TV updates, Instagram goodness and more.

Stay tuned!
