Canadiens general manager Bob Gainey will be coaching his first road game after recently replacing Guy Carbonneau behind the Habs bench.

Tickets remaining for upcoming games:

Saturday, March 21, vs. New York Islanders: Fewer than 2,000 tickets remain. The Senators host former Senator Dean McAmmond and the New York Islanders for the final time this season.

Saturday, April 4, vs. Philadelphia Flyers: Fewer than 1,500 tickets remain for the Flyers' second and final visit to Ottawa this season. The Senators lead the season series two games to one and were victorious the last time these teams met at Scotiabank Place on Nov. 6. Flyers centres Mike Richards and Jeff Carter rank in the top 15 in NHL scoring this season.

Prior to both Saturday games, fans can enter Scotiabank Place through Gate 1 for the Sens Gameday Experience, presented by Esso, with doors opening at 10 a.m. for the pre-game skate, which starts at 10:30 a.m. Activities will include face painting and tattoos, T-shirt giveaways and a free Senators poster for the first 500 children in attendance.
