PHILADELPHIA -- Senators coach Cory Clouston, with his club 2-1-1 in its past four games, opted not to make any lineup changes. G Brian Elliott made his sixth straight start while D Alex Picard and D Christoph Schubert were healthy scratches. "They're playing well right now. Why break things up?" Clouston said. "(Elliott's) confident ... He's very comfortable and familiar with getting a heavy workload. He did it several times (in the AHL). We played seven games in 10 nights one time and he played six of them." ... C Mike Richards returned to the Flyers lineup after missing five games with the flu.

Sun Rating: 3 out of 5
