Murray sets new line combinations at practice

There was a new look to the Senators' lineup at today's practice at Scotiabank Place. In preparation for tomorrow's game in Buffalo against the Sabres, head coach Bryan Murray had four new combinations with his forward lines.

The lines included Dany Heatley-Jason Spezza-Antoine Vermette, Peter Schaefer-Dean McAmmond-Daniel Alfredsson, Chris Neil-Mike Fisher-Patrick Eaves and Denis Hamel-Chris Kelly-Brian McGrattan.

"We're probably going to start that way (tomorrow)," Murray said after practice today. "Alfie will probably be flipped around a bit, depending on what we face. He'll be the flexible guy that could move in and out of the Spezza-Heatley line."

With a 6-10-1 start to this season, Murray has been spending a lot of time analyzing different combinations with his forwards.

"I'm impatient. I'm frustrated. I want to win," Murray said. "I came to Ottawa for one reason, and that was to have a good hockey team."


Among the best
After Monday night's NHL action, Senators forward Chris Neil found himself atop the NHL standings in hits with 64. Defenceman Anton Volchenkov was also among the league's best in blocking shots. He was tied for second, with Atlanta Thrasher Greg deVries with 58. Thrasher Andy Sutton is first in the NHL with 79.
