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

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.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
