Pittsburgh Penguins v Ottawa Senators - Game Four

A couple months ago Jason Spezza was recovering from back surgery when news came out that he had suffered a setback. Well actually, news came out that “his recovery was talking longer than expected.”

That’s because he messed up his MCL in rehab, which means he was likely braced up in playoffs, which is pretty crazy when you consider his back was still on the mend too. Honestly, what would the hat trick of terrible body parts to have injured as a hockey player be (brain excluded)? Knee, back and…shoulder? Foot? Hip? Either way, he’s almost there.

The news isn’t all bad though:

He should still get in a relatively full summer of training. Nobody gets started this soon anyway.
