OTTAWA - Pascal Leclaire is ready for his return.

The Senators goalie will end his long off-season Friday against the Montreal Canadiens when he makes the start at the Bell Centre to open up the back-to-back games.

"It'll be fun to get into one game," said Leclaire Thursday. "The practices are tough. I'm looking forward to that first game of the season. It's a fun building so it should be a fun night."

Leclaire said he expects to start and play 60 minutes. The club will also have the trio of Peter Regin, Mike Fisher and Alexei Kovalev.

"We'll all play off each other and hopefully we'll get off to a good roll here," said Fisher.
