The sizzling Dany Heatley-Jason Spezza-Brandon Bochenski line will stay together for tonight's game against the Montreal Canadiens at the Corel Centre. The other lines will shape up this way: LW Peter Schaeffer (back from taking a puck in the mouth) with C Mike Fisher and RW Martin Havlat, back from a stint on left wing; LW Antoine Vermette with C Bryan Smolinski and RW Daniel Alfredsson; LW Denis Hamel with C Chris Kelly and RW Brian McGrattan. W Chris Neil will get the night off. G Dominik Hasek will get the start in the net for the Senators.

REDDEN'S STATUS STILL UNCERTAIN

The status of D Wade Redden, whose ailing mom, Pat, had surgery Thursday, is still uncertain. He didn't practise yesterday, but was due to go for a skate and meet with Senators coach Bryan Murray yesterday afternoon.
