LOS ANGELES - No matter how you look at it, it’s a sore spot for the Senators.

While captain Jason Spezza returned to practice with his teammates Tuesday at the Toyota Sports Complex in nearby El Segundo, there are no guarantees he’ll be in the lineup Wednesday against the Los Angeles Kings.

Though Spezza’s sore groin was fine after the hour-long skate under the watchful eye of Paul MacLean, the Senators’ coach doesn’t want the injury to be an issue all season and is considering sitting the star until he’s 100%.
