NEW YORK -- In a vicious playoff match between the Rangers and Senators, Ottawa lost captain Daniel Alfredsson after a high hit from New York's Carl Hagelin in the second period.
Alfredsson crumpled to the ice after taking Hagelin's elbow to the helmet and crashing into the end-boards at 10:32 and did not return. Hagelin was slapped with a five-minute elbowing major after forcing his fellow Swede from the game.
Alfredsson missed time earlier this season with a concussion after a questionable hit from then-Ranger Wojtek Wolski in the teams' first meeting Oct. 29.
Hagelin could be facing supplementary discipline for the penalty.
Earlier in the game, Senators defenseman Matt Carkner and Rangers forward Brandon Dubinsky were ejected for their roles in a heated brawl 2:15 into play.
