Robin Lehner will get the start in net and Cody Ceci will remain in the Ottawa Senators lineup against the St. Louis Blues Monday night.

Lehner takes the spot of Craig Anderson, who allowed two goals on four shots before being pulled for Lehner in Saturday’s 5-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

Meanwhile, Ceci, the Ottawa native and former Ottawa 67′s star, will be playing his third consecutive game since being called up from Binghamton of the American Hockey League.

Marc Methot, who has missed the past two games following a nasty bout with the flu, skated Monday morning, but will not play Monday as the team chooses to give him another day of rest.

Jared Cowen will return to the lineup, after sitting out the past two games due to a suspension for a high hit on Buffalo’s Zegmus Girgensons. Eric Gryba will join Methot on the sidelines.

Former Senators goaltender Brian Elliott will get the start for the Blues, who own a 22-6-3 record. The Blues have won three consecutive games, including a 4-3 overtime victory over Columbus Saturday.
