The Senators had a whole new look Thursday as coach Paul MacLean tries to shake this team out of its doldrums.

Coming off a 6-5 loss to Chicago Blackhawks Tuesday night, MacLean changed every line at practice during the one hour skate at the Canadian Tire Centre _ including skating top centre Jason Spezza with Chris Neil and Cory Conacher.

The pairing of Erik Karlsson and Marc Methot was broken up on the blueline as MacLean attempted to shake up his struggling club that has lost three straight. MacLean said he’ll start with the combinations against the New York Islanders Friday at home.
