NOTEWORTHY

New coach Cory Clouston wouldn't name his starting goalie yesterday because "I haven't told him yet." Brian Elliott, an all-star for Clouston in Binghamton, was yanked after allowing four goals on 16 shots in Washington. The mild-mannered Elliott displayed a wicked temper at the bench. Thankfully, no member of the Senators equipment staff insisted on him wearing a cap. "You never want to get pulled," Elliott said. "That's obviously what ticks you off." ... The Kings hired Bryan Murray's brother, Terry, as coach on July 17, 2008 ... Also returning home as Kings are C Derek Armstrong (Ottawa), D Sean O'Donnell (Ottawa) and C Brad Richardson (Belleville) ... Ex-Senator D Tom Preissing has seven points and is a minus-7 with the Kings.
