(Sports Network) - Northeast Division rivals will get together tonight in Ottawa, where the Senators host the Boston Bruins at Scotiabank Place.

Boston has gotten the upper hand in the series as of late, as the Bruins have won both meetings between the foes this season and are 6-0-1 in their last seven matchups with the Senators.

Ottawa has taken five of the last six against Boston as the home team, however. The clubs have not faced one another at Scotiabank Place in 2006-07.

The Senators have been struggling for most of December but return home having won two of their last three games. Ottawa wrapped up a four-game road trip with a much-needed victory on Saturday, dealing Northeast leader Buffalo a 3-1 loss at HSBC Arena.

Jason Spezza had two goals and an assist while Ray Emery stopped 35 of 36 shots for the Senators, who had lost four of five prior to the win. Dany Heatley finished with a goal and two helpers in the triumph.

Ottawa could get a key piece to its lineup back for tonight's showdown in defenseman Wade Redden, who hasn't played since November 30 with a chest injury but returned to practice on Monday.
