CALGARY -- Daniel Alfredsson will be out of the Senators lineup "indefinitely" with a lower back problem, coach Cory Clouston said today.

"I'm hoping it will be a couple of weeks, no more," said Alfredsson.

Robin Lehner will be Ottawa's starting goalie versus the Flames. Clouston said the plan is to alternate goalies for the next little while.

Matt Carkner will be back in the lineup against the Flames. Brian Lee will be out.

Up front, Jarkko Ruutu and Bobby Butler will be in the lineup.
