This is a pretty huge deal for the Ottawa Senators. Jason Spezza will be back for game three. From the Montreal Gazette:
It might be a lot to ask, but the Ottawa Senators are hopeful Jason Spezza will be just what they need to get back into their playoff series with Pittsburgh.
Spezza, who hasn't played since January 27 after undergoing back surgery for a herniated disc, will draw into Ottawa's lineup Sunday for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series that the Penguins lead 2-0.
"I'm excited to have a chance to play again," said Spezza. "I feel ready to play."
The 29-year-old will immediately add depth to a struggling offence and power play.
Spezza could drastically improve the Senators' fortunes.
