The return of Ray Emery to Scotiabank Place is only one part of the intrigue as the Chicago Blackhawks visit the Ottawa Senators Friday.

Emery, the former bold and brash Senators goaltender will be playing here for the first time since he was bought out of his contract by the Senators in 2008, after his well-publicized series of misadventures on an off and the ice. In quite the coincidence, Emery will be going head-to-head against Robin Lehner, the current bold and brash Senators netminder who has had his own share of controversies while trying to establish himself as a full-time NHL player.
