If the Ottawa Senators hope to save their season, they need to get moving.

Job 1: Defeating their division rival (and the team in possession of the Eastern Conference’s final playoff spot), the Toronto Maple Leafs, in a rare Saturday night home game.

Craig Anderson will be in goal for the Senators, while Cory Conacher, who missed Friday’s practice for “maintenance” will also be good to go.

Coach Paul MacLean said that, as of the morning skate, there were no lineup changes to announce. There is a chance brawler Matt Kassian could play, but that call will be made closer to game time.

“Ever since I took this job, when you play the Maple Leafs, it’s a big game in this town, so that hasn’t changed at all,” MacLean said. “I think that the rivalry that was born decades ago I think is still there and I think every time we play the Leafs, we get excited about it and we know the game is going to be a physical game and we look forward to it.”
