NOTEWORTHY

G Ray Emery will get the start in nets for the Senators ... The Leafs are expected to have W Kyle Wellwood back for tonight's game. He's been out since January after having surgery for a sports hernia. The Leafs are hoping he can give a boost to their power play, ranked 19th in the league ... Senators W Dany Heatley goes into tonight's game with 37 points in 23 career games against the Leafs. He had an assist in Thursday night's game to give him 18 to go with 19 goals ... Heatley has four goals and five assists in seven games against the Leafs this season ... Ottawa C Jason Spezza's two assists Thursday night give him 30 points in 21 career games against the Leafs ... Christoph Schubert, who has played mostly at forward this season, practised on the blue line yesterday. "At some point or the other we're going to need him to play back there, I think," said Ottawa coach Bryan Murray. "Getting him some minutes back there in practice or in a game is important for him. If he's our next guy on the blue line, he should play there a little bit."
