Alfredsson to return for Game 6
Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson told reporters Monday morning that he would make his return to the lineup for Game 6 of his team's Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the New York Rangers on Monday night (7 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC).

Alfredsson took part in the team's optional morning skate, and told reporters he felt good enough to play. He had been out since Game 2 of the series, when he was elbowed in the head by the Rangers' Carl Hagelin and suffered a concussion.

Hagelin was given a three-game suspension for the hit.

The Senators lead the series 3-2.

Quote of the Day

I don’t know if it was more relief for me that [Stamkos] scored or the power play scored. It was a whole compilation of Alka Seltzer.
