Emery makes season debut tonight

Senators sophomore goaltender Ray Emery is keen to make his season debut tonight when the Calgary Flames visit Scotiabank Place.

"I want to start the season on the right foot," Emery says. "It's been a while since I've played and I'm excited to get in the net. Obviously, I want to play as much as I can. I want to play well to give myself the opportunity to do that."

Senators head coach Bryan Murray expects a high-level effort from the Flames tonight.

"I know they're a very hard working team and they've got a great goalie (reigning Vezina Trophy winner Miikka Kiprusoff). They're big on the blueline. You better keep your head up when you go up against (Dion) Phaneuf."

Both the Senators and Flames have started the 2006-07 season with a 1-2-0 record and are coming off losses.

"They're going to be highly motivated," Murray says. "They're in the same frame of mind as we are. Both teams are just trying to win games at this time."

Alfredsson, Heatley and Spezza reunited
Captain Daniel Alfredsson will be back on a line with Jason Spezza and Dany Heatley tonight. The combination gelled well last season as the majority of Heatley's and Alfredsson's 103 points, and Spezza's 90 points, came while the trio played together.

"The main thing is to try and find a way to win," Spezza answered when asked what he expects from the line tonight. "Obviously, we've been put together to score goals but we've got a strong cast up front with other guys who will help us, too. We want to get off to a good start tonight. Getting a lead when we come into the room (for the first intermission) would be big for us."

Corvo injury update
Senators defenceman Joe Corvo has skated the last two days on his own, and Murray hopes he can resume practising with his teammates early next week. Corvo is recovering from a broken right foot he sustained while blocking a shot on Sept. 22 during a pre-season game against the Buffalo Sabres.
