The Ottawa Senators will get a boost to their lineup Tuesday against the Tampa Bay Lightning when Bobby Ryan returns to action, Senators head coach Guy Boucher told reporters following the team’s morning skate. The forward suffered a broken finger Feb. 18 against the Toronto Maple Leafs when he blocked a Jake Gardiner shot late in the third period of a 6-3 Senators win. The 29-year-old had 12 goals, 24 points in 50 games prior to the injury. Boucher also announced Kyle Turris, who has missed the past week with a fractured finger, will return to the lineup. Turris skated on a line with Zack Smith and Ryan Dzingel at Tuesday’s morning skate while Ryan played alongside Alex Burrows and Derick Brassard. While getting Ryan and Turris back is great news, Ottawa will be without Craig Anderson. The goalie wasn’t on the ice Tuesday morning as he deals with a lower-body injury. The team recalled Chris Driedger from the team’s AHL affiliate. Mike Condon will get the start in net against the Lightning. He made 39 saves in a win over the Coyotes in his last start.
