PITTSBURGH — There have been a number of young goalies who have stepped in and led their teams to glory in the chase for the Stanley Cup.
The Ottawa Senators are hoping Brian Elliott is another one.
Elliott will play his first NHL playoff game when the Senators open their series here against the Penguins on Wednesday night.
"We expect Brian to play well and we're going to give him a lot of support and stay with our structured game," coach Cory Clouston said after the morning skate.
"We just have to play a smart game, no different than we've done all season."
This is the way the Senators lined up at the morning skate: Jason Spezza between Peter Regin and Daniel Alfredsson, Mike Fisher between Milan Michalek and Matt Cullen, Chris Kelly between Jarkko Ruutu and Chris Neil, and Zack Smith between Nick Foligno and Jesse Winchester.
On defence, it was Chris Phillips with Anton Volchenkov, Matt Carkner and Erik Karlsson, and Andy Sutton with Chris Campoli.
