Senators News: December 19th

-Binghamton faces Wilkes-Barre (13-10-2) tonight in a re-match of their game on Saturday.  Beau Bennett still leads the Penguins in points (21) and backstopped by Jeff Zatkoff (10-6-0 2.00 .922).  Zatkoff was unable to play in the last game, but I’d expect him to suit up tonight if he’s healthy.  As mentioned yesterday Ben Blood was recalled by Binghamton which may mean Mark Borowiecki is still out of the lineup or that the flu bug has knocked out a different defensemen.

-Elmira plays Trenton (10-11-4) tonight; they are lead by Andy Bohmbach (24 points) and backstopped by Scott Wedgewood (7-7-2 3.00 .898).

TSN (Craig Button specifically) has put out a top-thirty list of signed prospects who have played less than 10 NHL games.  Ottawa’s Jakob Silfverberg was 16th while Mika Zibanejad was 23rd.

-We’re neck deep in the lockout and it has been interesting to see how the Sens blogosphere has held up.  Some sites have either intentionally thrown in the towel until the lockout is over (Welcome to Your Karlsson Years), flailed about with a hodgepodge of articles (The Silver Seven), or gone boss-mode and covered what there is to cover (The 6th Sens).  I can’t say I’ve found the absence of the NHL very limiting–covering the prospects of the team and looking forward to the draft provides more than enough material to keep chugging along.
