Auld to face Flyers tonight
Alex Auld gets the call to make his second straight start in goal as the Ottawa Senators face off against the Philadelphia Flyers tonight (7 p.m., CBC, Team 1200) in their third-last home game of the 2008-09 season.

Auld, who boasts a 3-1-0 record and a 2.83 goals-against-average in five career games against Philadelphia, comes off a 2-1 loss to the Bruins in Boston on Thursday.

"They're a very deep team," said Senators head coach Cory Clouston following the team's morning skate (listen to full interview here - MP3 file). "They've got three lines and a fourth line that's very effective that can score goals. They're a physical team, a big strong team. So a big challenge for us."

Meanwhile, it's a milestone night for Senators centre Jason Spezza, who suits up for his 400th career National Hockey League game.

"It flies by, especially if you have a couple of years where you don't miss games," Spezza said of his achievement. "This year, I haven't missed any games, so you get closer and closer to your milestones. It comes quick. It doesn't feel like yesterday but it definitely comes quick."

Earlier this season, Spezza recorded his 400th career point. He now has 146 goals and 268 assists in six seasons with the Senators.
