Seems like a pretty obvious statement, but with the weekend off to rest this knee/back (has anyone actually confirmed what's wrong with him?) and the Sens down 2-0 and returning to home ice, a return by Daniel Alfredsson would be down-right heroic.
It's terribly ironic that now two games into the playoffs, the Sens got a great game from their grinders, but are now missing the rarely-labelled primary scoring. Jason Spezza and Dany Heatley have combined for 1 point in the past two games. Alfie would bring not only a huge boost of spirit for his team, but also the offensive spark that the first line needs.
