CANOE -- SLAM! Sports - Hockey NHL - Toronto: Leafs getting healthyLeafs getting healthy
By MIKE ZEISBERGER -- Toronto Sun
For two guys who have been sidelined from the Maple Leafs lineup for weeks, Pavel Kubina and Staffan Kronwall were yukking it up pretty good inside the dressing room at Lakeshore Lions Arena yesterday.
There was good reason for all this fun and frivolity.
In Kubina's case, another day of practice means he is inching ever so closer to a return. While coach Paul Maurice is opting not to insert the hulking defenceman into the lineup for tonight's encounter with the Philadelphia Flyers, both parties are hopeful that Kubina will be back against the Boston Bruins in Beantown Thursday.
"I've never played with a brace before," Kubina said, pointing out the device on his left knee. "I'm starting to get used to it, though. I'm feeling more comfortable every day."
