from Sean Gordon of the Globe and Mail,
There are regular humans, there are quick healers, and then there is Jordan Staal.
The hulking centre suffered torn ligaments in his foot this past Friday in a collision with Montreal’s P.K. Subban, but barely six days later, the 21-year-old is a possibility for Thursday night’s Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semi-final between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Canadiens.
Staal said he feels as if he could play – Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said he would be “a game-time decision” – and was blunt about the stakes of this game, where a victory would give the defending Stanley Cup Champions a 3-1 stranglehold on the series.
“This is definitely a breaking point game,” he said.
