* Preview:

Coach Dave Cameron told the Senators website forward Bobby Ryan (hand) and defenseman Cody Ceci (upper body) are questionable against Florida. The two were injured in the 5-2 road loss against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday. Cameron also said goalie Craig Anderson will likely start against the Panthers, but the decision was not set in stone. (More) Preview:

The Panthers have won three of their last four at home, with the lone setback a 4-2 loss to Ottawa (17-12-5) on Dec. 8. Zack Smith scored in that contest for the Senators, who have been outscored 14-5 on the road since that win. (More)
