BOSTON — Matt Gilroy will make his Ottawa Senators debut and Zenon Konopka will return to the lineup against the Boston Bruins Tuesday night.

Robin Lehner will also make his second straight start in place of the injured Craig Anderson.

The Bruins have swept the previous four games against the Senators this season. Goaltender Tim Thomas, who has an 18-3 record in his past 21 games against the Senators, will be in goal for Boston.

Gilroy, acquired Monday from Tampa Bay in exchange for Brian Lee, is expected to play with Chris Phillips on defence.

Konopka, who has been a healthy scratch for the past eight games, will replace Kaspars Daugavins.
