The Senators will have a new look, but some familiar faces for the Battle of Ontario Tuesday at Scotiabank Place.

While centre Mike Fisher is out with a upper body injury, winger Nick Foligno will return after missing 12 games with a broken leg he suffered in January. Defenceman Chris Campoli is also ready to return after suffering a MCL sprain just before the Olympic break.

Blueliner Brian Lee has been returned to the club's AHL affiliate in Binghamton.

Along with Fisher, defenceman Filip Kuba will miss his sixth straight game with an upper body injury.

"It's been nagging (Fisher) for the last couple of games," said Ottawa coach Cory Clouston Tuesday.

Goalie Brian Elliott, who made 18 stops in a 2-0 loss to the Calgary Flames last Thursday, will make the start. Elliott took a shot off the mask in practice but appears to be fine. The Senators are 1-5 (one of those an overtime shootout loss) since the Olympic break.

Winger Shean Donovan will be a healthy scratch.

Ottawa needs to get back on track.

"We've just got to worry about winning games. We've just got to get back to our game," said Clouston.
