It won't be another game-time decision for Ottawa's Daniel Alfredsson on Saturday. The 39-year-old captain will not even make the trip to New York, the Senators announced Friday afternoon.

Alfredsson has missed the past two games after suffering a concussion in Game 2 on a hit from Rangers rookie Carl Hagelin.

Hagelin was slapped with a three-game suspension for the hit, which earned him a elbowing major, and is not eligible to return until Game 6.

Without Alfredsson in the lineup for the second straight game, the Senators erased a 2-0 deficit in Game 4 to beat the Rangers 3-2 in overtime Wednesday, tying the series 2-2.

Game 5 is Saturday at Madison Square Garden.
