from Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun,
So while the Vancouver Canucks captain is officially “a game-time decision” for tonight’s meeting with the Minnesota Wild, there seems little doubt he will play and his extend his NHL ironman streak to 553 games.
Sedin tested his right ankle at this morning’s game-day skate at the Xcel Energy Center and said it felt better than it did on Wednesday.
A CT scan done on Wednesday showed no evidence of a fracture and Sedin has been assured he cannot further damage his ankle by playing. It is a pain-management issue.
“Like I said, I want to play games,” Sedin said after the team’s morning skate. “That’s No. 1 and if they say it’s not going to get any worse and I’m able to play then I am going to play. That’s my only answer.”
