Spezza ripped a power-play goal past Ryan Miller in Friday's win over the Canucks. It was a laser from Spezza, who also had five shots in the victory. The former Senator is heating up on the second line, having scored a goal in four of his last six games. Considering he's got 17 points in 23 games and is skating on the first power-play unit with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn, there is no reason he can't continue to find twine at a decent rate.
In Friday's win over the Caps, Spezza scored the game-winner for the second game in a row. Spezza is on a three-game goal streak and has fired off 14 shots in those games. He's been playing out of his mind, even if he's playing less than 17 minutes pretty consistently.
Spezza was held without a point for the fourth straight game on Thursday, adding four shots in just 14:10 of ice time. Spezza hasn't scored in four games despite firing off 15 shots in that time. The points are bound to come. He's getting the shots and still playing on the team's top power play unit. Right now is not the time for panic.
Spezza picked up two assists -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Bruins. Spezza is really starting to benefit from playing with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn, as the two lead the NHL in scoring with 20 points each. The Stars top-line right wing has five goals and 12 points in 13 games.
Spezza had an assist, a shot and 18:44 of ice time in Thursday's overtime win against the Canucks. That apple keeps Spezza at a point per game pace with five goals and five assists in 10 games. He's also averaging 3.4 shots per game. It's hard to ask much more of the 32-year-old second-line center.
