Game 16 Preview & Open Thread: Carolina Hurricanes @ Ottawa Senators

The Sens haven’t been able to string together consecutive wins all season, and are going to be in tough against a Carolina Hurricanes team eager to make up some ground after a slower than expected start to the season.

One player who might make a difference is first-line centre Colin White, who is expected to return to the lineup tonight after suiting up for the BSens yesterday for conditioning. D.J. Smith hasn’t spoken yet, but here’s what we’re expecting:

Tkachuk - Tierney - Duclair
Paul - Pageau - Brown
Namestnikov - White - Ennis
Chlapik - Beaudin - Davidsson

Chabot - Zaitsev
Brannstrom - Hainsey
Borowiecki - DeMelo

Nilsson (starter)

The Canes are 9-6-1 — currently fourth in the tough Metropolitan division — after making a run to the conference finals in 2018-19.
