The good news for Sens fans is Alfredsson was on the ice with his teammates at the morning skate and really seems to be progressing well. He passed all his baseline tests and could potentially make the trip with the team on Friday. Would be fitting that the Captain make his return on 11/11/11.
Meanwhile, the Sens will be looking to snap a three game losing streak with a surging Rangers team in town. New York comes into this one having won four straight.
One change to the Ottawa line up as David Rundblad will draw back in and take the place of Brian Lee. Same look up front with the exception of Nikita Filatov who was returned to Bingo. Konopka takes that spot. Here is how the Sens lined up at the morning skate.
Craig Anderson gets the start for the home side while the Rangers will counter will Henrik Lundqvist. All the action can be seen live on TSN starting at 7:30 or streamed on the radio at Team1200.
