PHILADELPHIA - The Senators are sticking with the hot hand in net.

Goalie Brian Elliott will make the start Monday as the club's four-game road trip continues against the Philadelphia Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center.

Coming off a 2-0 victory over the Boston Bruins Saturday, coach Cory Clouston won't be making any changes. The coach would like his Senators to pick up where they left off against the Bruins.

"We just want to continue to play well," said Clouston.

Flyers coach Peter Laviolette said he has been impressed with the way the Senators have competed.

"They're a team that works really hard," said Laviolette. "They battle and when they are on their game they are really competitive.

"There wasn't a lot of turnover in the lineup since I came on board. They gave us our handful in three games. They play the same style, same coach, same players and I would expect nothing really changes."

Defencemen Brian Lee and David Hale will both be healthy scratches.

The Flyers will be without winger Andreas Nodl. He took a shot off the toe Saturday and isn't expected to play. His spot will be taken by James van Riemsdyk.

Game time is 7 p.m. on Sportsnet East.
