The Senators will have a new face in the lineup for Round 2 of the Battle of Ontario.
The club has recalled blueliner Tomas Malec from their AHL affiliate in Binghamton to take the spot of injured defenceman Tom Preissing.
The newly-acquired Preissing is listed as day-to-day with what is believed to be a knee injury he suffered trying to hit Toronto's Mats Sundin in the second period of Ottawa's 4-1 victory Wednesday.
"I don't think it is anything serious. Like I said, if it was the playoffs I would be in there," said Preissing. "I was just trying to hit a guy and kind of slammed my leg."
The club would have recalled veteran Jamie Allison, but he was given a couple of days to report to Binghamton.
"Malec moves the puck and he's a guy I like. Allison hasn't skated in a couple of days," said Senators coach Bryan Murray.
