NOTES

Thrashers forward Marian Hossa was the favourite of at least 100 kids from the Ottawa Boys and Girls Club last night as the former Senator paid for their tickets to attend the game at Scotiabank Place ... The crowd sounded like it was losing patience with Senators centre Jason Spezza, booing him after a turnover in the Atlanta zone ... The Senators played without defenceman Chris Phillips as he sat out with a sprained thumb ... RW Brian McGrattan was also a scratch again because of his swollen right eye ... In attendance last night was former Senators defenceman Lance Pitlick ... Senators defenceman Zdeno Chara led the club with five shots ... Chris Neil was the Senators leader in hits with six.

Sun Rating: 3 out of 5
