Eric Lindros, who has missed the last ten games with a groin injury, has started skating again and could practice next week.
Lindros must get healthy to play in the post-season and right now he's not. "He's got to be healthy," coach Dave Tippett said. "It's one thing just to be in the lineup, but you have to have the capability of doing something. We have people who are very capable, and we can't lose those people because we are trying to get another guy up and running. [Joel] Lundqvist is a good player, a very good player, and we can't just take him out. And add to that, [Steve Ott] needs games, too. [Lindros] has to be healthy and be able to contribute to be a piece of the puzzle. He's trying hard, but this is a results-oriented business." Be very, very careful if you want to take Lindros late in your playoff pool.
