NOTES

Senators C Jason Spezza missed his third straight game with a pulled pectoral muscle suffered last week in Montreal. Whether he'll be able to go tomorrow when the Hurricanes come to town is still unknown. "It's not much better than it was, he tells me," said coach Bryan Murray, who, like Spezza himself, admits he's never witnessed such an injury either. "He's just day-to-day, I guess. He's got to tell me he can play." Said Spezza: "The pain has gone to one specific area. It's not as broad as it was. I can shoot and stickhandle fine. I just can't stride"

Sun Rating: 3 1/2 out of 5
