Morning skate update: Senators look to pounce on tired Panthers

The Ottawa Senators are hoping to take advantage of a fatigued Florida Panthers team to extend their early-season winning streak to three games.

SUNRISE, Florida — The Ottawa Senators are hoping to take advantage of a fatigued Florida Panthers team to extend their early-season winning streak to three games.
While the Senators haven’t played since Monday’s 4-0 win over Florida, the Panthers are playing their third game in four nights. They lost 4-1 in Montreal Tuesday.
The Senators will make no lineup changes and goalie Craig Anderson (2-0, 0.50 goals against average) will look to extend his hot early season play. Senators coach Paul MacLean says Anderson has benefitted from hisa defence clearing away rebounds, limiting second and third chances.
At the same time, MacLean is stressing more consistency from his team.
Jose Theodore, the 36-year-old veteran, will draw the start in goal for the injury-depleted Panthers.
