Ottawa Senators forward Jason Spezza is set to make his return to the lineup after missing four games with a groin injury.

Head coach Cory Clouston said Spezza will play on a line with Alex Kovalev and Peter Regin when Ottawa hosts the Boston Bruins on Saturday night.

"Those three guys should be able to play well together," Clouston said Saturday morning. "They should be able to use some of their creativity and generate some offence without sacrificing defence."

Spezza has five points (one goal, four assists) in five games this season.

Clouston also said forward Milan Michalek could miss a week with tendinitis in his left knee. He added he's hopeful defenceman Filip Kuba (leg) can return in the next week.
