Sens' Spezza sidelined with illness
Jason Spezza is out of the lineup for Tuesday night's game against the New Jersey Devils at Scotiabank Place due to an 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'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
