Timely return: Jason Spezza will be back in Ottawa Senators lineup for Game 3

Saturday, 05.18.2013 / 2:55 PM The Canadian Press

OTTAWA - Jason Spezza will make his much anticipated return to the Ottawa Senators on Sunday.

The Senators star forward hasn't played since Jan. 27 after being sidelined by a back injury that required surgery.

Spezza is expected to line up with Milan Michalek and possibly Colin Greening for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series that the Pittsburgh Penguins lead 2-0.

The 29-year-old will immediately add depth to a struggling offence and power play.

"I'm excited to have a chance to play again," said Spezza. "I feel ready to play."

Spezza had two goals and three assists in just five games during the regular season.
