The Ottawa Senators have struggled since taking their international trip to Sweden, winning just one of the 9 games they have played since returning from Europe, and their head coach will be looking shake up his lineup in order to find a winning formula.
On Wednesday had coach Guy Boucher confirmed that both forward Mark Stone and defenseman Ben Harpur would both be injected into the line up, although who will sit as a result still hasn't been made clear.
Senators insider Bruce Garrioch believes that former first round pick Cody Ceci is a likely candidate to be a healthy scratch as a result of the lineup change, however he asked Boucher about the possibility and was rebuffed by the coach.
“Don’t make that assumption," said Boucher as per the Ottawa Sun.
As things stand today the Senators are currently 9 points out of a playoff spot and considering the team went all-in on a trade for star forward Matt Duchene, you can be certain the organization is not happy with that.
One has to wonder how much more time Boucher will given to mix things up if the Senators continue to struggle.
