Report: Senators' Daniel Alfredsson Hopes To Return For Game 6 Against Rangers

Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson is nearing a return from his recent concussion, and he hopes to be on the ice tomorrow night for Game 6 against the New York Rangers, according to the Canadian Press.

“I'm hopeful,” Alfredsson said. “We're obviously going to wait until tomorrow. But the way the last two days felt, I'm encouraged.”

Alfredsson took an elbow to the head from Rangers forward Carl Hagelin in Game 2; Hagelin was suspended three games for the hit. It was the second concussion in the last six months for Alfredsson, 39. The veteran forward has watched the Sens' last three games from home, and he's eager to get back on the ice.

“It could have been a lot harder,” he said. “The guys have played really hard. I think we've played the way we want to and it's been fun to watch — but it's also been a frustrating week. ... It's nice to be back on the ice and hopefully get back at it tomorrow.”

The No. 8-seeded Senators lead the Rangers 3-2 and are on the verge of upsetting the conference's top seed. The Sens host Game 6 at 7 p.m. tomorrow.
