Jason Spezza has not played in a game for Ottawa since being injured in late January.

OTTAWA (AP) -- Jason Spezza will make his much-anticipated return to the Senators on Sunday.

The Ottawa star forward hasn't played since Jan. 27 because of a back injury that required surgery.

Spezza is expected to line up with Milan Michalek and possibly Colin Greening for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series that the Pittsburgh Penguins lead 2-0.

The 29-year-old will immediately add depth to a struggling offense and power play. Spezza had two goals and three assists in just five games during the regular season.
