During Game 3 last night in Ottawa, Brian Boyle was booed every time he touched the puck in response to his roughing up of All Star defenseman Erik Karlsson during Game 1.Here's Boyle's reaction to the jeers (via ESPN NY)..."Honestly, I was surprised. If I'm the villain to them, that's good."...i'm just a surprised as Boyle. Carkner took care of it in Game 2 and figured it was a dead issue. Guess not....makes it that much sweeter Boyle scored the game winner.John Tortorella said this about Boyle post game..."He's playing the right way. I think a lot of us can -- and a lot of us are -- following his lead. That's what he's doing right now: He's leading."Boyle, who has eight goals in his last 12 games, said this about his elevated play of late..."Overall, just my confidence with the puck has been better lately.

Hagelin hit gave Alfredsson concussion

Daniel Alfredsson has confirmed he sustained a concussion in Game 2 of Ottawa's playoff series with New York when Rangers forward Carl Hagelin elbowed him in the head. However, the Senators captain participated in Monday's morning skate and said he's a game-time decision for Game 3 at night. Alfredsson missed more than half of Ottawa's series-tying victory Saturday...

Concussion sidelines Sens star in Game 4

Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson did not participate in Wednesday's morning skate and is not expected to be in the lineup for Game 4 of the team's opening-round playoff series against the Rangers. Alfredsson sustained a concussion on a hit from Rangers rookie Carl Hagelin during Game 2 at Madison Square Garden Saturday. Hagelin received a three-game suspension....

Losing It with Matt Carkner

So Carkner wasted no time exacting his pound of flesh Saturday night, roughing up Boyle for a second before coldcocking him twice followed by a series of gratuitous body shots at ice level. Boyle's man-handling of Karlsson in the series opener set the stage for this incident, which many have argued was a deserved response. Maybe so, Carkner was just doing his job right...

Senators' Alfredsson skates with team, iffy for Game 3

Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson participated in Monday's morning skate prior to Game 3 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series against the top-seeded New York Rangers. Alfredsson was injured after taking an elbow to the face in Saturday's Game 2 from fellow Swede Carl Hagelin, who was suspended for three contests. The veteran forward is questionable for...

The Hoff is Taking Turns on the Second Line

In somewhat of a confounding decision, head coach Paul MacLean has opted to give black ace Mike Hoffman turns on the second line's line rushes spelling Bobby Butler. Given Butler's strength of play in Monday night's game, a game that many would concede was one of Butler's best, one has to wonder whether this is some kind of psychological ploy designed to keep Butler...

Girardi, McD Shutting Down Ottawa

Through the first three games of the Rangers/Senators series, Ottawa's top scorers Jason Spezza and Milan Michalek have combined for just two assists. The reason? Dan Girardi and Ryan McDonagh.Here's Girardi and McDonagh's teammates on their importance to the team's success (via NHL.com)...Brad Richards..."Everybody's had a shot playing against them at different...

Alfredsson Passes Baseline Concussion Test

According to head coach Paul MacLean, Daniel Alfredsson has passed his baseline concussion test and depending on how the captain feels, he will be a game time decision tonight. In other words, having skated on the team's second line with Kyle Turris and Nick Foligno at this morning's practice, it would probably be foolish to dismiss Alfie's questionable status for game...

Henrik Lundqvist Denies The Senators goals Like He's The US President

  Henrick Lundqvist owned the Ottawa Senators tonight by denying all 39 shots on goal. This is his fourth NHL playoff shutout. Brian Boyle put his 2 cents in by scoring for the 3rd straight game allowing the Rangers to inch past the Senators in game 3 with a 1-0 victory. Of course you need goal(s) to win a game, but I think 99% of the credit should be given to Lundqvist for shutting...
