Chris Phillips is ready for action.

The Senators defenceman, who missed the team's last 11 games of the regular season after suffering a knee injury vs. the New Jersey Devils on March 28, has always had a knack for elevating his play in the post-season and he's going to get the chance to do that again this year.

Phillips declared yesterday he'll be ready for action in Game 1 against the Lightning tomorrow.

Phillips, who went through his first full workout with the Senators since the injury and skated alongside Zdeno Chara, said afterward he'll be fine.

"I'm feeling good and I'm ready to go," said Phillips. "I gave it a good test out there. That is important for me."
