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

When things aren't going well for us in this city [Toronto], I think there is a lot of overanalyzing going on. You've got the most passionate fans in the world here and a lot of (media) coverage, so you know there's going to be a lot of people giving their two cents worth on us.
