THE SKINNY: Scored 10 of his goals on the power play, making him second on the team in that department behind Sidney Crosby (11) ... Led the Rimouski Oceanic in scoring for two straight seasons before the arrival of Crosby .... Fourth round pick, 124th overall, of Pittsburgh's in 2000 ... Had back to back 30 goal seasons with the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins (AHL) in 2003-04, 2004-05 ... Had 10 goals and 20 assists in 19 games with Wilkes-Barre Scranton before being called up this season.

NOTEWORHTY...

Don't be surprised if the Senators decide to go with Ray Emery in goal tonight. The rookie has struggled in his last three outings, losing each and allowing 17 goals on 62 shots, but his teammates feel his fortunes will soon turn. "We haven't played well at all (in Emery's last three)," said C Mike Fisher, while noting Emery's strong work ethic. "I don't think it matters who's in goal ... you get that question a lot ... we've just come out flat in those three." ... D Christoph Schubert turned 24 on Super Sunday ... The Senators have sold out 22 home games this season, including their last 16.
