NEW YORK -- The Senators muddled goaltending picture has just gotten fuzzier.

Pascal Leclaire has pulled up lame after taking a shot in practice and goaltender Brian Elliott is nursing a flu which means Mike Brodeur has been recalled from Binghamton and could possibly make the start against the Rangers.

Elliott may play but coach Cory Clouston wasn't quite sure about his status. Brodeur stopped 22 shots in 4-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Dec. 22nd at Scotiabank Place.

"I wish I could give you more information. I just don't know right now," said Clouston moments ago.

The Senators are in the midst of a five-game losing streak, have lost two straight on this five-game road trip and need to get back on track or they'll be on the outside of the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference.

Defenceman Filip Kuba took part in the morning skate but will miss his third straight game on this trip. He is day-to-day and could play Saturday in Montreal.

The Senators will use forward Kaspars Daugavin on the fourth line. He was recalled from the club's AHL affiliate in Binghamton while Martin St. Pierre was sent back.
