Daniel Sedin Appears To Be Ready For Game 1

from David Ebner of the Globe and Mail,

Team management had previously - on the record, and quietly - suggested the younger of the Sedin twins would be ready for the playoffs - and indeed he appears to be, skating Monday morning with his regular blue helmet, which means he is cleared for contact and pretty much good to go.

Ahead of practice, Sedin was out only for about 10 minutes, but skated hard, and practised one-timers (along with slumping David Booth, Mason Raymond, and also-in-concussion-recovery Keith Ballard).

The Canucks will need all the firepower they can get against the Los Angeles Kings, the two teams starting the playoffs with Game 1 in Vancouver on Wednesday. Jonathan Quick, a likely Vezina candidate for L.A., let in less than two goals a game in four contests versus the Canucks during the regular season (the same stingy netminding delivered by Roberto Luongo against the limp Kings’ O).

I bet neither one of those little weasals will come within 10 feet of cheap-shotting Duncan Keith ever again.  I just hope they meet the Hawks in the playoffs so they can chase bobby lou and give your punks an excuse to riot early this year.
