The Ottawa Senators should have the services of centre Jason Spezza when they take on the red-hot Boston Bruins at Scotiabank Place Saturday night.

Coach Cory Clouston said Spezza was “probable” to play, but the final call would be made after the morning skate. Spezza has missed four straight games with a groin injury.

Ottawa got more good news on the injury front as Pascal Leclaire, who has also missed time with his own groin problem, returned to the ice with his teammates. Leclaire has been skating on his own, but missed Wednesday’s practice after suffering a minor setback.

He was out for 20 minutes before heading back to the locker room, though Clouston said that was the plan heading into the skate.

Milan Michalek, Chris Phillips and Alex Kovalev took the morning off, but will be fine to play against the Bruins.
