KANATA, Ont. -- Jason Spezza's 600th NHL appearance will have to wait for another day.
Spezza is out of the lineup for Tuesday night's game against the New Jersey Devils at Scotiabank Place due to an illness. Spezza, who participated in the optional morning skate but did not address the media, was replaced by Bobby Butler in the lineup.
The 28-year-old center leads the Sens with 75 points (29 goals, 46 assists) in 73 games this season.
They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
