Penguins hope Brassard can replace Crosby against Senators

OTTAWA -- The timing is good for the Ottawa Senators to be facing a team that has traditionally given them trouble.

The Pittsburgh Penguins (7-7-3) will be without captain Sidney Crosby and in a two-game slide that has left them last in the Eastern Conference when they provide the opposition Saturday night at Canadian Tire Centre.

Crosby, who has 43 points in 38 career games against the Senators, is expected to miss a week with an upper-body injury. The Penguins are hopeful for the return of Derick Brassard, who has missed three weeks with a lower-body injury, to help fill the void.
