Bobby Ryan (finger) could be back in the Sens lineup before the Feb. 26 trade deadline.

Ryan, who was injured ealier this month, was expected to miss at least three weeks, so this makes sense. The Sens forward has already missed seven games. He has seven goals and 20 points in 39 games this season.

Derick Brassard has scored in each of his last three games.

Brassard's getting hot at the right time for the Senators, as he's been in the middle of trade rumors for the last few weeks. He has 16 goals and 16 assists in 54 games this season. There's a very real chance that he could be shipped out of town before the Feb. 26 trade deadline. "I know it’s a business," Brassard said. "There’s no hard feelings for anyone. Same as when I got traded for Mika (Zibanejad). I got traded against a really good young player. I take it as a compliment."
