from Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province,
Pavol Demitra skated on his own Wednesday morning, but it was tough to find his stride with heavy legs and a heavy heart.
A day after test results revealed that his wife, Maria, is on the road to recovery after another medical scare, the exhausted Vancouver Canucks winger revealed what it was like to deal with that uncertainty while missing sleep and the last four NHL games.
“We had 911 on the speed dial and she was in the hospital a couple of times,” said Demitra. “Obviously when you have to call 911, you’re very scared.”
While Demitra wouldn’t provide ailment details, his wife was also hospitalized in early February with a reaction to a prescription that initially looked like she may have a heart problem.
