He’s missed the team’s last eight games, but Chris Neil is back tonight for the Senators. The always pugnacious and ever-irritating Neil returns to a Senators team that’s hanging on this season and needs of an injection of toughness.

Either way, the Senators toughness level will jump a few notches tonight against Washington, a team that goes without an enforcer on the ice.
