Many Ottawa Senators fans did not enjoy seeing that defenseman Dion Phaneuf was not at the team's morning practice in preparation for tonight's game against the Detroit Red Wings

However, head coach Guy Boucher confirmed with media following the morning skate that the veteran defender will be in uniform for the contest tonight. 

As for Mark Borowiecki, he did skate this morning but he is not ready to get back to action. 

The 28-year-old is best known for his defensive abilities and willingness to get physical, but fans must remain patient. The blueliner suffered an upper-body injury against the Vancouver Canucks on Oct. 17.
