NOTES:

MONTREAL -- Senators RW Brandon Bochenski told the Team 1200 yesterday that he intends to play next Saturday vs. Edmonton. He has been out three weeks with a shoulder injury and has been skating with captain Daniel Alfredsson (cracked rib). As for Alfredsson, he has been increasing his workout with assistant coach Randy Lee every day, but has to be able to take physical contact before he can return to the lineup ... The Senators tried changing around their line combinations to get the offence going yesterday, but it didn't work. Chris Kelly saw time between Dany Heatley and Patrick Eaves while Bryan Smolinski played with Vaclav Varada and Antoine Vermette ... C Mike Ribiero returned to the lineup for the Habs after being a healthy scratch for two straight games ... Injured Senators C Jason Spezza (chest) hopes to play vs. the Coyotes. "I want to play Tuesday, but we'll see how it goes," Spezza said, noting his chest has felt better the last couple of days. "Right now, we just want to protect it."

Sun Rating: 2 out of 5
