OTTAWA - There was no sign of Pascal Leclaire Sunday at Scotiabank Place.

He's hurt ... again.

The Senators goaltender has a lower body injury he suffered in Friday's 3-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils, but coach Cory Clouston said Leclaire should be OK to backup Monday against Atlanta.

If he can't suit up, then it's expected Robin Lehner will be called up from the club's AHL affiliate in Binghamton. He isn't scheduled to join Team Sweden for the world junior championships until later this week.

"We're hoping he's OK, but I'm not going to say yes because nobody knows," said Clouston.

Leclaire made 29 stops Friday. This means Brian Elliott will be in the net against the Thrashers.

The Senators are trying to get back-to-back wins for the first time in over a month and get back into the playoff race.

The Senators had only a one-hour workout Sunday.
