Chris Neil will be a healthy scratch in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final against Pittsburgh on Friday night. Neil has only suited up in two games this postseason, and none of them have come in this series. Chris Kelly, Ben Harpur, Colin White, Jyrki Jokipakka and Chris DiDomenico will also watch the game from the press box. Alex Burrows will miss the game because of a lower-body injury.

The Ottawa Senators will not dress Chris Neil for Game 1 against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Chris Neil will join Viktor Stalberg, Chris Kelly, Colin White, Jyrki Jokipakka, Christopher DiDomenico, and Ben Harpur as scratches. It's worth noting that Stalberg will miss the game due to an undisclosed injury.

Chris Neil skated with the Senators scratches this morning, indicating he will likely not dress for Game 1 against the Penguins. After playing a combined 4:15 in Games 5 and 6, it appears head coach Guy Boucher will go in a different direction in their series against the Penguins. The Senators will need to maximize the usage of their lineup if they want to beat the defending Stanley Cup Champions and replacing Neil with someone who can play in all situations is a good start. No word on who will be taking his place tonight.

Chris Neil will be in the lineup for Game 6 against the New York Rangers. There was some doubt as to whether or not he'd play tonight, but the Sens have opted to use him for the second straight game. Neil managed to pick up 12 penalty minutes in Game 5.

It's unclear if Chris Neil will stay in the lineup for Game 6 on Tuesday night. Coach Guy Boucher said there would be game-time decisions up front, but noted that they are injury related. Neil had 12 penalty minutes and logged just 2:26 of ice time on Saturday in his 2017 playoff debut.

Although he only played 2:26, Chris Neil sparked his Senators' teammates in their Game 5 win over the Rangers. Neil received a 10-minute misconduct in the contest, which strangely energized his teammates who went on to score two goals while he sat in the penalty box. To a man, the Sens' players stated that having Neil in the lineup and on the bench was a positive. It remains to be seen if Neil will suit up for Game 6 in New York on Monday.

If it's Ottawa, I'll rally around Anderson & injured Burr. If they win, I'll just have to grit my teeth seeing Chris Neil with The Cup.
@Senators Need Chris Neil in lineup, for spark, consistency, morale, & determination. Veterans excel in playoffs.
