Murray: Alfredsson Injury "Significant"

Bryan Murray spoke to the media Friday morning and revealed that both Daniel Alfredsson and Mike Fisher - injured in last night's 8-2 win in Toronto - will be out "weeks", and indicated that Alfredsson's injury is worse than Fisher's.

Alfredsson is said to be suffering from two injuries - the obvious one, a head injury, was not reported until today; they initially stated last night that Alfie was suffering from a knee injury. Alfredsson was cleanly yet solidly checked from his blindside after sending away a pass from Leafs winger Mark Bell. Alfredsson's helmet flew off of his head before he hit the ice.

Fisher suffered a knee injury on his third shift of the game and did not return.

Ottawa hosts Boston tonight, where earning just one point will secure Ottawa their 11th straight post-season appearance.

The Habs host Toronto Saturday the question is: Should coach Carbonneau rest some of his key players to avoid a potentially devastating injury? Or should he dress them and gun for a shot at the Eastern Conference title?
