from Helene Elliott of the LA Times,
Three games into his return from reconstructive surgery on his left knee, Ducks defenseman Francois Beauchemin has shaken off any sense of hesitance or rustiness.
“Everyday feels strong. No setback, no pain,” said Beauchemin, who missed 62 games and nearly five months.
His teammates feel even better about having his physicality back in the lineup for the playoffs, when they need it most.
“I’ve been a bit surprised how he’s stepped in and played as well as he has,” Scott Niedermayer said Sunday as the Ducks prepared for Game 2 tonight at HP Pavilion.
“He was down for a long time. He doesn’t look like he’s really missed a beat. It looks like he’s been there all year. It’s been good for us, for sure. He’s played three games, and they’ve all been good.”
