Well that's just not nice.

Guy Boucher takes no prisoners, as evidenced by the scar on his face (we have the inside scoop on how the scar came about, and it may or may not include three bears, a knife fight, and some other murky backstory).

Okay, all kidding aside, Boucher has decided to bench Fredrik Claesson on his birthday in favour of other defensemen for today's tilt agains the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Thomas Chabot and Ben Harpur have been in and out this season, playing 4 and 5 games respectively thus far. The change on the blue line appears to be an attempt to reverse the Ottawa Senators' fortunes as of late.

The Sens have lost 2 straight and are 3-5-2 in their last 10 games.
