Senators News: November 25th; Binghamton 5, Adirondack 2

-According to The Ottawa Sun no lineup changes are expected tonight other than Craig Anderson in goal (link)

The Ottawa Sun‘s Don Brennan wonders how the Sens will handle Sidney Crosby (link), which doesn’t cover new ground, but contains a good quotes from Zack Smith, “I just don’t think anyone is going to try and elbow him [Crosby] in the head or hit him like he was before, but that should be the case with everyone.”

The Ottawa Citizen‘s Wayne Scanlan looks at Colin Greening‘s season thus far (link), with the rookie downplaying Calder talk, “I’m more of a meat and potatoes kind of guy.”  He also talks about his work in the weight room, “I’ve always put a lot of time into it. It’s an interest of mine. I think if something is your passion, you tend to spend more time at it. I enjoy working out, I enjoy going to the gym; maybe it’s the endorphins that I get. I love talking to Chris Schwarz about different techniques he has learned or different equipment, different exercises.”  Finally he adds, “Being in the corners battling, in front of the net battling, they’re the things  that if I want to stay at this level I’ve got to do.”

Senators Extra‘s Ken Warren mentions Nikita Filatov‘s strong performance in the two games he’s played since the KHL flap (link), with three goals and three assists

-Warren, writing for The Ottawa Citizen, wonders how Stephane Da Costa will do against Pittsburgh’s talented centers (link), with Paul MacLean saying he’ll line up against Jordan Staal to start

-Binghamton won its second game in a row with a victory over Adirondack.  Nikita Filatov, Derek Grant, and Mark Parrish each had three point nights while Andre Petersson added a goal.  I did not see the game so I’m reliant on reports (for the box score go here link, for Joy Lindsay’s game summary go here link).

Robin Lehner is expected to get the start tonight against Syracuse
