The Senators are sticking with the hot hand.

After being named the NHL's player of the week, goalie Brian Elliott will be back in the net Tuesday night against the New Jersey Devils at Scotiabank Place.

With the club on a six-game winning streak, there is no reason for coach Cory Clouston to make a change.

Elliott will be trying to help the Senators pick up their first victory against goalie Martin Brodeur and the Devils since Oct. 8, 2007.

The Senators are 0-5-2 against New Jersey in that stretch, but with Milan Michalek, Daniel Alfredsson and Jason Spezza all back in the lineup after lengthy absences due to injuries, the club is completely healthy for the first time in months.

"When you bring in Alfredsson, Michalek and Spezza, it gives you your whole first line," said Clouston.

Defenceman Anton Volchenkov, who missed Saturday's 2-1 victory over the Boston Bruins, will return to the lineup. Alex Picard will be a healthy scratch.
