Covers Preview - Jason Spezza makes his return to Ottawa when the Dallas Stars face off against the Senators in Canada's capital on Thursday. The 31-year-old spent the first 11 seasons of his career with Ottawa before requesting a trade, which he received when he was dealt to Dallas on July 1. The Stars look to get back in the win column after falling to Boston on Jan. 20 and again at Montreal on Tuesday in the opener of their three-game road trip.
