TAMPA, Fla. -- Ottawa D Anton Volchenkov was a scratch with what's being described by the club as a lower-body injury. While Volchenkov indicated to coach Bryan Murray he wanted to play, the Senators decided not to take any chances.

Volchenkov could, however, be available tomorrow against the Carolina Hurricanes ... Tampa D Luke Richardson, an Ottawa native, was a healthy scratch against the Senators. He has suited up for only seven games this season. Richardson, who finished last year with the Toronto Maple Leafs, had talked with Ottawa during the off-season, but the Senators decided to go in a different direction.
