OTTAWA - Don't you hate when the weatherman says it "feels like" a certain temperature? Like what, for instance, does minus-20 really "feel like"?

To most, it's simply cold. To Jason Spezza, on the other hand, it feels like hell.

"I know about it," the Senators captain said Thursday morning of the minus-20 he would take into that night's game against Tampa. "I have to contribute more 5-on-5."

Only five players in the league, including Milan Michalek, had a worse plus-minus mark than Spezza, who had not scored an even-strength goal since Nov. 24.

Talk about cold.
