Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson is out with a hip flexor injury. Daugavins has been recalled from Binghamton and will take his place in the lineup. According to coach Paul MacLean, Daugavins might start the game in Alfredsson's spot on Mika Zibanejad's line.
We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.
