The Ottawa Senators are only a few hours away from taking on the Detroit Red Wings, and there could be some mildly awkward run-ins out on the ice when the two squads clash. That’s because both the Red Wings and Senators feature a handful of Swedish players that were teammates taking on Canada just a few days ago.
Now they’re all back with their respective NHL team, going at it for an important two points in the standings. There’s little doubt that Niklas Kronwall won’t hesitate if he has a chance to crush Erik Karlsson as he rushes the puck up ice, but there’s the added intrigue of the two having just laced up the skates next to each other a few short days ago.
And then there’s the whole Daniel Alfredsson playing in Ottawa thing to consider. While it’s not his first trip back to the city where he spent so much of his playing time, it still has to bring an odd feeling about to sit in the visitors dressing room.
