Senators lose Spezza

OTTAWA -- The Sabres' greatest nemesis -- the Ottawa Senators and their longtime "Big Three" -- is suddenly just one-third of the threat it used to be.

Senators center Jason Spezza could miss two months after suffering a "fairly serious" knee injury during Monday's game in Toronto. Spezza, along with Dany Heatley and Daniel Alfredsson, has helped the Senators to a 21-6-4 record against Buffalo since 2005-06.

Heatley, though, was traded in the offseason. With Spezza out for Wednesday's game, that leaves just Alfredsson from the dominant trio.

"It means that more than ever we're going to have to be a team," Senators coach Cory Clouston said today in Scotiabank Place.
