NEW YORK - The Big Three are being reunited.
Senators coach Craig Hartsburg, who was defiant Friday about using the trio of Daniel Alfredsson, Jason Spezza and Dany Heatley, will put the so-called Pizza Line back together tonight against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden.
While Alfredsson played with Mike Fisher and rookie Ilja Zubov in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the New York Islanders, the Senators need to get some offence going with the club mired in a four-game losing skid.
Zubov has been moved to play with Dean McAmmond and Shean Donovan. Fisher will line up with Jarkko Ruutu and Nick Foligno. Antoine Vermette, Chris Kelly and Jesse Winchester will be the fourth line.
Defenceman Brendan Bell, called up from the club's AHL affiliate in Binghamton Sunday, will make his debut with the club this sason. The Ottawa native is being brought in to help run the power play and it would appear Christoph Schubert is going to come out of the lineup.
Alex Auld will make the start in goal.
