Is This It For Yzerman

from the Edmonton Journal,
Is this Steve Yzerman's last hurrah? Final fling in Edmonton? Last game in the NHL? Knowing Yzerman's pain threshold, he may drag his aching body onto the ice Monday night, if only to take some faceoffs or work the power play or as a rallying cry for the Red Wings, who are one loss from being the seventh No. 1 playoff seed to be bounced in Round 1 by a No. 8 since they instituted this playoff format in 1994. That apparent back injury he sustained early in overtime in Game 3 while jostling with Jarret Stoll may be more serious than people think, or else he wouldn't have missed the last two playoff games.
