Chris Phillips is expected to get back into Ottawa's lineup on Wednesday.

Chris Phillips will once again be a healthy scratch Monday when the Senators visit the Sabres.

The veteran defensemen will be a healthy scratch for the second straight game for Ottawa. Coach Dave Cameron wants to stick with the same lineup that led to a 3-2 victory over the Bruins on Saturday, which means Patrick Wiercioch will be back on the blue line for his second straight game. Phillips had recorded just two assists in 23 games played for the Sens this year. Newly called up Jean-Gabriel Pageau will also be a healthy scratch for the Senators on Monday night.

In a surprise move, Chris Phillips will be a healthy scratch for Saturday afternoon's game against the Bruins.

Phillips is usually a mainstay on the Sens' blueline so this is a bit of surprise, especially when you consider that Marc Methot will not be playing. We guess that Mark Borowiecki is over his bought with the flu or else coach Dave Cameron would not have enough healthy bodies to sit Phillips.
