Sergei Gonchar will more than likely suit up tonight

Sergei GoncharDon’t look now, but Pittsburgh Penguins defensemen Sergei Gonchar looks poised to suit up for tonight’s Game 1 Eastern Conference Final match up with the Carolina Hurricanes.

After suffering a pretty violent knee-on-knee collision in Game 4, Gonchar sat out Games 5 and 6 before returning to suffer through bits of Game 7. Now, with a few more days rest, Gonchar looks to be pretty optimistic regarding his health for this most recent series.

Gonchar is currently third on the team in playoff scoring despite the injury and will no doubt play a significant role in dictating the Pens’ power play if healthy enough to suit up.
