captain Daniel Alfredsson
told reporters Monday morning that he would make his return to the lineup for Game 6 of his team's Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the New York Rangers
on Monday night (7 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC).
Alfredsson took part in the team's optional morning skate, and told reporters he felt good enough to play. He had been out since Game 2 of the series, when he was elbowed in the head by the Rangers' Carl Hagelin
and suffered a concussion.
Hagelin was given a three-game suspension for the hit.
The Senators lead the series 3-2.
