OTTAWA - Daniel Alfredsson was welcomed back with open arms. The standing ovation after a short video was only three minutes, but the memories of this homecoming will last a lifetime.

While it was a night the Senators would rather forget, the former captain couldnít have scipted this return to the Canadian Tire Centre any better with a goal and an assist in the Detroit Red Wings 4-2 victory in front of a season-high and appropriate crowd of 20,011.
