Following the Ottawa Senators victory over the Maple Leafs on Wednesday, DJ Smith announced that the team would be taking the three groups that had been formed at the beginning of training camp and would be merging them into two groups heading into the weekend.
Forward lines remain together
The coaching staff had players in different groups on Friday compared to the groups they were in on Thursday during practice. However, the majority of the lines remained the same through the two days of practice. There have been a few lines that have been consistently together since the start of camp, and to this day they remain together.
