Senators spread out during all-star week
Senators defenceman Joe Corvo will attend the NFL playoff game between the Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints during the NHL all-star break.

by Todd Anderson

The Ottawa Senators look to win their second straight game against the Boston Bruins tomorrow before embarking on a four-day break during NHL all-star week. While Dany Heatley will compete in the all-star game, and Patrick Eaves and Andrej Meszaros have been invited to play in the YoungStars game, the rest of the team will take advantage of the time off to travel, spend time with family, or just relax.

"I'm going to head down to the Big Apple (New York) and hang out there," says defenceman Wade Redden. "I might go and watch the (NBA's) Phoenix Suns play the New York Knicks, too. I'm not a big fan, but I don't mind watching the odd ball game."

Fellow defenceman Joe Corvo plans to catch another professional sporting event.

"I'm going to Chicago with my wife and a couple friends to watch the (Chicago) Bears," Corvo said of the NFL playoff matchup against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. "I think the Bears are going to win."

For newcomer Mike Comrie, the break allows him the chance to finally get a wardrobe together.

"When I was traded here (from the Phoenix Coyotes on Jan.3) we were in the middle of a road trip. I didn't really have that many clothes with me. I'm going to go home and get some more back here."

Centre Antoine Vermette expects to spend time at his home near Quebec City.

"I'm going to spend time with family and friends. This will probably be time for me to relax and recover and get ready for the last stretch of the season," he said.

While most of his teammates will be leaving Ottawa, Senators centre Jason Spezza, who has been out of the lineup since suffering a knee injury against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Dec. 21, will remain working out at Scotiabank Place next week.

"I'm just going to be here trying to get ready to play," Spezza said. "I had a long enough break (after suffering the knee injury) so I don't need the all-star break."

Capital Hoops a big hit
Carleton University and the University of Ottawa announced earlier this week that a new block of tickets has been opened up for the inaugural MBNA Capital Hoops Classic to be held at Scotiabank Place on Jan. 23.
 
With less than a week to go before the event, more than 8,700 tickets have been sold, while fewer than 100 tickets are available in the 100 and 200 levels at Scotiabank Place. In response to the demand for the event, a new block of tickets in the 300 level at centre court has been opened up for purchase.
