Daniel Alfredsson says this could be his last Cup chase.

The Senators captain has one year left on his contract, but at 39, he's not sure he's going to get another chance to play in the playoffs. So as Ottawa prepares to face the Rangers, he can't wait for he challenge.

Ottawa hasn't been in the post-season since 2010 and Alfredsson isn't sure this chance is going to come along again in his career.

"I look at it as it could be my last playoffs," Alfredsson said Monday. "I'm going to treat it as such. Who knows even if I play next year if we're going to get back into the playoffs?
