Daniel Alfredsson will make him return to Ottawa today for his first time as a Red Wing.
"A lot of good memories, a lot of good things happened here.
It will be a special game." - Daniel Alfredsson
Coach Babcock will put Alfie in the starting lineup, so the fans can acknowledge their former captain on the opening faceoff.
One of the things (Alfie) gets to do here is say thanks. He’s done that already anyway...Anybody who’s played almost 1,200 games in your organization and has done a lot for your city and the kind of man he is off the ice, it’s his opportunity to take a bow that way." - Mike Babcock
Jonas Gustavsson will start in goal. Monster is 6-0-1 this year.
Todd Bertuzzi skated, but will not play today.
Pavel Datsyuk is out, as expected, with a possible concussion.
