MONTREAL — Ottawa Senators coach Paul MacLean won’t make any changes for Friday night’s game against the Montreal Canadiens.
Zenon Konopka will be in again, while Bobby Butler and Kaspars Daugavins will be out.
Butler had been tabbed to sit in Tuesday’s game against the Devils but subbed in when Jason Spezza fell ill.
On defence, Matt Carkner will be scratched for the 12th game in a row.
Meanwhile, goalie Craig Anderson will return after slicing the baby finger of his right hand in a kitchen accident four weeks ago.
Jason Spezza is also back after missing Tuesday’s game. He’ll be playing in his 600th game.
