The Senators will wrap up their exhibition schedule tonight in Montreal at the Bell Centre.

Goaltenders Ray Emery and Dominik Hasek are expected to split the goaltending chores tonight.

Sens coach Bryan Murray continued to jiggle with his lines a bit last night, giving Antoine Vermette another chance to move up the lineup and play on a line with Daniel Alfredsson and Bryan Smolinski.

Martin Havlat also got another game on right wing with C Mike Fisher and LW Peter Schaefer.

Ws Chris Neil and Vaclav Varada and D Wade Redden were the scratches last night.

TEEN'S STILL GOT SHOT WITH HABS

Canadiens GM Bob Gainey said the Habs will likely start the season carrying 23 players. The Habs still need to make another three cuts to get down to that number. Teenage winger Guillaume Latendresse, who has quickly become a fan favourite, didn't dress last night against the Senators. Talk in Montreal is he will at least start the season with the Habs.
