Lineup Update: Spezza Out, Alfredsson, Zibanejad In For Senators Against Captials

One All-Star will return to the lineup after missing one game, but another will not be in the lineup as the Ottawa Senators face the Washington Capitals Tuesday night.

Jason Spezza has not skated in two days and will not play against the Caps with an upper body injury.  Daniel Alfredsson and Mika Zibanejad will be in the lineup as will Patrick Wiercioch.

To make room for Zibandejad and Wiercioch, Kaspars Daugavins and Andre Benoit will not play.  Peter Regin lined up in Spezza’s spot at the morning skate and will start there, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see Zibanejad get some time with Michalek and Greening to see what he can do.


Puck drop is at 7:30.
