Tonight's game against former teammate Dominik Hasek and the Detroit Red Wings will be the Ottawa Senators' first pay-per-view match in team history.

The game also marks the NHL debut for centre Josh Hennessy who was called up from the Senators' American Hockey League affiliate in Binghamton today. The 21-year-old will replace Brian McGrattan in the lineup. McGrattan suffered a hand injury against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday.

"Obviously, I'm very, very excited," Hennessy said after this morning's skate in Detroit. "I don't think it has really sunk in yet. I had a tough time sleeping last night, which was good because I had to be up at 4 (a.m.) to catch the plane."

Hennessy says the call-up was a surprise to him.

"To be honest, I was really happy and excited. I thought it would take a little longer," Hennessy said of playing in his first NHL game. "I guess I was fortunate enough to be next in line and I'm obviously happy about it."

Murray stresses the need for disciplined play
After tying a franchise record by allowing five power-play goals during Sunday's 6-2 loss to the Blue Jackets, Senators head coach Bryan Murray is looking for more discipline from his team tonight.

"We certainly didn't do ourselves any favours the other night in Columbus, taking 11 penalties," Murray said after this morning's skate. "How do you possibly win games if you do that. We put ourselves behind the 8-ball real early in the game and (Columbus) took advantage of it. From that point on, they were able to play their game and all we did all night was run around and try to catch up. We have to play more disciplined, and we have to get the puck in against (Detroit) and hopefully get some traffic at the net. If you don't do that, then you have a hard time scoring goals."
