Dubinsky out vs. Senators

Brandon Dubinsky (hand, nose) is out for Thursday's match against the Senators.

Forced from Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Devils after a lopsided fight with New Jersey's Ryan Carter, Dubinsky is dealing with a sore hand and sinus issues.

Backup goaltender Martin Biron will start in Ottawa as the seventh-place Senators host the Eastern Conference-leading Blueshirts.
