It looks like a National Hockey League enforcer will be suiting up for Game 5.

While there has been no official announcement, Ottawa Senators insider Bruce Garrioch is now reporting that veteran Chris Neil has been spotted taking warmups. Again while it's not official, it certainly points to the fact that Neil is likely to play this evening.

It would be a drastic change for the Senators, and one has to believe that head coach Guy Boucher must be trying to send a message here, or perhaps this is merely an attempt to inject some additional protection for a banged up Erik Karlsson into the line up.

Neil has played in just a single game since the trade deadline, making this a huge surprise.
