No Alfie tonight for Sens

4 Comments

TSN’s Darren Dreger is “hearing” that Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson (concussion) will miss tonight’s game against the Rangers.

Alfredsson was injured Saturday on an elbow by New York forward Carl Hagelin, who received a three-game suspension for the act.

Alfredsson’s absence certainly outweighs Hagelin’s in term of significance to the team – the 39-year-old finished fourth in scoring (27G, 32A) on the Senators during the regular season.

There was talk earlier today that Alfredsson could be in the lineup tonight. He took the morning skate and was reportedly to be a game-time decision.
