OTTAWA - Really, what the Senators have been able to do under adversity this season is amazing.
Beating the odds, battling through devastating injuries, getting hashtagged as pesky, the Senators could soon get a huge boost as they look to get past Round 2 of the NHL playoffs. It's possible star centre Jason Spezza, out since late January with a back injury, will return to the lineup.
Senators GM Bryan Murray revealed Friday that Spezza has been stepping up his rehab, skating with the team's reserve players, the Black Aces.
"He worked out fairly hard," said Murray. "He was involved (Thursday) and again (Friday). He's making progress. Where he is as far as game ready, I'm not sure.
