ST. LOUIS -- Mike Comrie is going from the outhouse to the penthouse.

The Senators winger has been moved onto the right side of the top line with Jason Spezza and Dany Heatley tonight against the St. Louis Blues at the Scottrade Center.

Spezza and Heatley have been struggling lately. Heatley, trying to score 50 goals for the second straight year, hasn't put the puck in the net in four games. Heatley is stuck at 42 goals with nine games to play.

"Mike has been playing well and, hopefully, he can help those guys produce," said Senators coach Bryan Murray at today's game-day skate.

Winger Patrick Eaves has been moved to the fourth line with Dean McAmmond and Oleg Saprykin, who will play the first time in five games. Defenceman Christoph Schubert, who is suffering from what the team calls soreness, won't suit up tonight.

Game time is 8 p.m., and it's being carried on Rogers Sportsnet.
