Ottawa Senators coach Paul MacLean was pressed and pressed on the status of star centre Jason Spezza Wednesday morning.
He offered little more than the fact that Spezza is “still being evaluated” and that he won’t be playing against Montreal Wednesday.
If the social media reports were accurate, Jason Spezza was in or around Toronto Tuesday night, in the process of having his “upper body” injury evaluated. He missed quite the comeback, as his Ottawa Senators roared back from a two-goal deficit to defeat the Washington Capitals 3-2.
The mystery surrounding Mika Zibanejad continues. The Ottawa Senators’ first round draft choice in 2011 made a surprise appearance at the club’s practice Monday afternoon and he could be in the lineup Tuesday against the Washington Capitals, but coach Paul MacLean says there are no guarantees.
