Here are your Ottawa Senators headlines a day before Daniel Alfredsson's 1000th NHL game:
- Looks like Milan Michalek could be back tomorrow; lines from practice this morning were Foligno-Fisher-Kovalev; Regin-Spezza-Alfredsson, Ruutu-Kelly-Neil, Michalek-Cullen-Shannon. That would leave Bobby Butler, Jesse Winchester, and Shean Donovan as healthy scratches. (Twitter)
- Some stuff commemorating Alfie's 1000th game, from the Citizen: He might stay in Ottawa when he retires, he's respected by people around the league, and his case for the Hall of Fame.
- GM Bryan Murray thinks Alfie's going to play until he's 40. (Sun)
- Nick Foligno is having a hard time getting back into the rhythm. (Citizen)
- Patrick Wiercioch's getting a taste of the NHL behind the scenes, even if not on the ice. (Sun)
- Sens prospect Corey Cowick and his Ottawa 67's took a 2-1 series lead over St. Mike's last night. (Citizen)
