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

Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.

— Maple Leafs GM Lou Lamoriello on goaltender Jonathan Bernier
