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

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
