Sens' Spezza to return for Game 3 vs. Penguins

Ottawa Senators center Jason Spezza is expected to suit up for Game 3 of the team’s Eastern Conference Semifinal series with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Ottawa trails the best-of-seven series 2-0 and is hoping the return of its No. 1 center to the lineup will provide an offensive boost.

The Senators are +115 underdogs in Game 3 Sunday and +750 pups to erase the two-game deficit and take the series over Sidney Crosby and the heavily-favored (-1,100) Penguins. Ottawa won both of its home games in its first-round series with the Montreal Canadiens.

Spezza had two goals and three assists in five games before he needed back surgery to repair a herniated disc in late January.

The 29-year-old accumulated 34 goals and 50 assists in 80 games last campaign.
