Mike Comrie will be out of the Senators lineup for the the third straight game tonight as he continues to battle the flu.
That means he will miss the chance to play against his former team, the New York Islanders, at Scotiabank Place.
Coach Cory Clouston wanted to give him one more day to build his strength back up.
"We don't want him to just be another body out there," said Clouston.
Brian Elliott, who has won seven in a row, will start in goal.
