Alfredsson had concussion, is game-time decision

OTTAWA (AP) - Daniel Alfredsson has confirmed he sustained a concussion in Game 2 of Ottawa's playoff series with New York when Rangers forward Carl Hagelin elbowed him in the head.

However, the Senators captain participated in Monday's morning skate and said he's a game-time decision for Game 3 at night.

Alfredsson missed more than half of Ottawa's series-tying victory Saturday following the hit from Hagelin. On Sunday, Hagelin was suspended three games by NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan.

Alfredsson said he accepted an apology from Hagelin after the incident. Hagelin also is Swedish and has said Alfredsson was one of his favorite players while growing up.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
