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

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
