Koivu & Kovalev Nearing Return

from the Montreal Gazette,
The Canadiens are learning to take the bad news with the good. The good news yesterday was that first-line forwards Alex Kovalev and Saku Koivu took strides toward returning to the lineup. The bad news is that Radek Bonk is out indefinitely with a torn groin muscle. He has had a series of problems in that area. Koivu and Kovalev provided some good news when they skated with a small group after the regular practice. Koivu, who has been bothered by a groin injury, might be in the lineup Saturday night when the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim visit the Bell Centre.
