Pens forward Eric Godard will be out 4-6 weeks with an injured groin, and to fill his roster spot, the team has recalled Nick Johnson, who has one goal in three NHL games this season. Godard has two assists and 64 penalty minutes in 42 games for the Penguins in 2009-10. His injury was suffered in the first period against the Rangers on Monday.

In other Pens injury news, Tyler Kennedy and Alex Goligoski will both miss tonight's game against Ottawa with undisclosed boo-boos, while Max Talbot and Bill Guerin are both expected to play.

Chris Kunitz, who has not played since January 3 because of abdominal surgery, skated today for the first time since the surgery and expects to be out at least one more week.

The Pens and Sens face off tonight at 7 PM, and will be televised on FSN. The red-hot Senators are riding a seven-game winning streak, so this should be a good one.
