Sens' Spezza sidelined with illness

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.
Quote of the Day

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
