Salo Looks As If He Could Play Tonight

from Matthew Sekeres of the Globe and Mail,

Vancouver Canucks defenceman Sami Salo is not exactly known for his toughness, but he was being lauded for precisely that after his team’s morning skate on Tuesday.

Salo, who is suffering from a testicle injury after taking a Duncan Keith slap shot to the groin on Sunday, skated with his teammates and took practice repetitions on a pairing with Alexander Edler, his regular defence partner.

He was not made available to the media, and his playing status is still unknown, but the veteran Finn certainly looked ready to comeback, despite excruciating pain that led to a hospital visit during Game 5.

When asked if he’ll enjoy the opportunity to get back out there with his teammates, Salo said “Oh, I’m sure I’ll have a ball.”
