Colin McDonald, Matt Donovan, and Eric Boulton will be scratched on Friday night against the Ottawa Senators.
Unfortunately none of these three players have much fantasy value, but that's mainly due to a lack of playing time. McDonald has eight points and 71 hits, but has played just 17 games. Donovan has played just nine games, and none since the first week of January. And Boulton has just five games under his belt despite nearly 1400 career PIMs. Mar 13 - 6:29 PM

I'm just going to make sure that doesn't happen again, I want to get that chip back on my shoulder."
