Daniel Alfredsson can make even more memories.

The Senators captain has been able to savour this season already: First, there was the resurgence in his play. Then came a magical weekend all-star weekend in Ottawa. Now, he welcomes the spring with a trip back to the playoffs.

The 39-year-old couldn't have scripted it any better himself coming into the season. Off-season back surgery has made Alfredsson look and feel young again. While he is talking about retirement, many believe he has years left in the NHL.
