Carolina Hurricanes left wing Jussi Jokinen apparently is a fast healer and will make his return to the lineup for Friday's game against the New York Rangers. Last week, Hurricanes general manager Jim Rutherford detailed that Jokinen would be sidelined three-to-four weeks with a leg injury. The assessment appeared to be on target, considering that the 28-year-old Finn appeared in great pain after twisting his leg awkwardly and falling over Ryan Shannon. "To miss three games, after how that injury happened and how I felt after that, I'll take that any day," Jokinen told the Raleigh News & Observer. Jokinen has collected three goals, six assists and 10 penalty minutes this season.
