Senators want to keep things simple tonight
Senators forward Denis Hamel scored one of his two goals this season against Montreal on Oct. 14.

As Ottawa Senators goaltender Martin Gerber puts his 4-0-0 career record against the Montreal Canadiens on the line tonight at Scotiabank Place, his team will look to bust out of its slump by getting back to basics.

The Senators return home after picking up three of eight available points -- with a win and an overtime loss -- during their recent four-game road trip. Despite seeing their record drop to 6-9-1 during the trip, there were positives to take home.

"We established a good work ethic on the road and now we have to keep it going," forward Chris Neil said after today's morning skate. "We have to get the puck in deep and work hard. We have to go out and play a basic game."

Alternate captain Chris Phillips says it's important for the Senators to remain focused on their objectives.

"We still believe in what we're doing and the game plan. We just have to execute better. We know we have lots of offensive players and that's a strength of ours. We have to apply the pressure."

Senators forward Mike Fisher says it's not the responsibility of individuals to turn things around.

"We're all in this together. As a team we know we have to be much better. We have to keep things a little more simple."

Injury report
Senators defenceman Wade Redden will not be available to head coach Bryan Murray for an indefinite period of time after aggravating a groin injury during Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Boston Bruins.

"There's no real timetable," Redden said on Monday. "Saturday it was tight and sore. I guess it's back to the drawing board."

Goaltender Ray Emery (left forearm injury) participated in the morning skate today but it will be Binghamton Senators callup Kelly Guard who will back up Gerber tonight. Murray said this morning that he was hopeful Emery would be fit to play later this week.
