Really, things are starting to look up for the Senators.

At least now when they lose important players to injury, it’s not for an extended period of time.

Marc Methot is expected to be in the lineup, and maybe Sergei Gonchar too, when the Senators host the Tampa Bay Lightning Saturday afternoon at Scotiabank Place.

Methot was actually listed as “probable” by coach Paul MacLean Thursday, and he just continued on that course with a full practice the following afternoon. Gonchar’s status, however, was anybody’s guess.
