Gonchar on Ice!

The Penguins webpage reported that defenseman Sergei Gonchar returned to the ice this afternoon and skated with strength and conditioning coach Mike Kadar prior to the team's practice.

Although there has yet to be a return date announced, this has to be good news for the Pens and could be the start of an upswing - LET'S HOPE!!

More news on the Pens injury list, Tyler Kennedy returned to practice last Wednesday and participated in full drills. Head coach Michel Therrien said that Kennedy should return sometime next week, but I've heard a few other reports speculating that it could be on Saturday against the Florida Panthers.
