Lehner will start Thursday in Ottawa.

Lehner had a rough start on Sunday vs. the Avalanche, allowing five goals on just 27 shots (.815 SV%). He was benched in favour of Chad Johnson on Tuesday, who normally only plays on back-to-backs. Tonight’s matchup against the Senators provides a nice opportunity for a bounceback game for Lehner, who has just one win in his last five starts.

McCabe underwent surgery on his thumb and will miss 3-4 weeks.

McCabe was hurt against Anaheim and did not return on Tuesday and will miss at least three games after undergoing thumb surgery this week. There’s no word how McCabe suffered the injury, but he recorded three blocked shots on Tuesday, so you have to think one of those shots did the damage.
