 TORONTO -- Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson said he's always treated well when he goes out for a bite to eat here and hasn't been booed in any public places. Even though most Leafs fans hate his guts when he's on the ice against the Buds, they're nice to him when he goes to eat at some of his favourite Hogtown places. "They're very nice and very respectful," said Alfredsson. "If you write this, that might change, but they've been great."

  HOME WOES: The Leafs have had a very average record at the Air Canada Centre in the new year and must now make it work in their favour at playoff time. Quinn lamented that clubs such as the Senators seem to thrive in the so-called centre of the hockey universe, especially in playoffs. "Visiting teams will go to other arenas and not get excited, which leads to some pretty sour games," Quinn said. "We don't get many sour games against us."

 LALIME FEELING GOOD: Senators G Patrick Lalime said he hadn't experienced any further problems with his left knee following his first game in 10 days on Thursday. He looked fine in practice and didn't appear to be struggling. "I feel good and I'm doing well," said Lalime.
