No Alfie tonight for Sens

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.

    If they bashed Boyle for giving Karlsen nuggies I can only imagine what action the Sens will take tonight to “even” the score.

      it’s troublesome to only hear and read about ‘evening’ the score. Why not just try to win the series?

      I feel like the Sens might be obsessed with just out-toughing the Rangers at this point…

      Both Kreider and Scott out for pre-game skate! Or, is Scott just giving everyone the evil eye! Either way, LET’S GO RANGERS!
