KANATA, Ont. -- The Ottawa Senators will be without their leader Monday night, as captain Daniel Alfredsson will not be in the lineup for Game 3 against the New York Rangers.

Alfredsson took an elbow to the head during Game 2 of this Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series from Rangers rookie Carl Hagelin, who was suspended three games for the infraction.

The 39-year-old took part in the Senators game-day skate, but was ruled out about an hour before faceoff due to a concussion.

The best-of-seven series is tied at 1-1 with Game 4 scheduled for Wednesday night at Scotiabank Place.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
