Some line changes, but Senators stick with their plan for Game 2

NEW YORK – The Ottawa Senators won’t make any changes to their lineup for Game 2 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal playoff series against the New York Rangers tonight.

Bobby Butler, Zenon Konopka, Rob Klinkhammer, and Matt Carkner will again sit out.

However, it does appear coach Paul MacLean will shuffle his lines.

During the morning skate, Daniel Alfredsson was on the top line with Jason Spezza and Milan Michalek.

If they play together, Spezza said he, Alfredsson, and Michalek have “instant chemistry.”

Erik Condral moved up to play with Kyle Turris and Nick Foligno.

Colin Greening dropped down to play with Zack Smith and Chris Neil.

The fourth line was Kaspars Daugavins, Jim O’Brien, and Jesse Winchester.

MacLean said he wasn’t sure if he go with Alfredsson, Spezza, and Michalek to start the game, or whether he’d shift to it later in the game.
The Rangers, who won the first game 4-2, also won’t make any changes to their lineup.
