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

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
