from Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News,
Vanek, who has missed the last nine games with a broken jaw suffered Feb. 7 in Ottawa, skated fully in contact drills Monday and proclaimed himself ready to take the ice against the Habs.
“That’s the plan for right now,” Vanek said. “It’s always tough to watch the team, especially when they’re not winning. That makes it even tougher. If you’re watching the game and you’re out injured or a healthy scratch, you hate watching your team struggle and lose. It’s nice to get back and hopefully help out.”...
Ruff said winger Maxim Afinogenov is “definitely a possibility” to make the lineup Wednesday as well if he’s not traded. Afinogenov, who was battling groin and hip injuries, has been healthy for two weeks and reiterated for reporters Monday what he told The News Saturday on Long Island—he wants back on the ice or he wants out of Buffalo.
