Elliott replaces injured Senators goalie Leclaire

Senators goaltender Pascal Leclaire will miss the game against

Montreal because of a groin injury.

Brian Elliott will start on Saturday night, with Robin Lehner as

the backup. Lehner will join Ottawa after playing for Binghamton on

Friday night.

Leclaire will be evaluated next week after injuring his groin

while making a save against Carolina on Thursday night.

Also, Nick Foligno was fined $2,500 Friday by the NHL for an

illegal check to the head on Carolina’s Patrick Dwyer. No penalty

was called on the play.

The fine is the maximum permitted under terms of the collective

bargaining agreement.
