Mending Markov longs for weekend return
By MIKE ZEISBERGER -- Toronto Sun
What once was diagnosed as a deep contusion has evolved into a real pain in the ankle for Danny Markov.
Markov, who resumed skating a couple of days ago, hopes to return to the lineup Saturday when the Maple Leafs are home to the Los Angeles Kings at the Air Canada Centre. Failing that, he could join the Leafs for a trip to Tampa and Boston for games Feb. 1 and Feb. 3 respectively.
"It's possible," Leafs general manager/coach Pat Quinn said yesterday when asked if Markov would be healthy enough to suit up against the Kings. "I certainly hope that is the case.
"Danny's still in a lot of pain, and anyone who knows Danny knows he has a high threshold for it. That's something we still have to get by.
"It would be nice to get him back."
Markov has been champing at the bit to be back on the ice with his teammates. After all, the original diagnosis of his injury did not entail him missing this much time.
When Markov limped out of Madison Square Garden on crutches after being nailed by a shot during a 3-2 overtime loss to the New York Rangers on Jan. 5, he didn't expect to miss more than a week. Both the Leafs and Markov considered themselves lucky that the ailment was no worse than an apparent bone bruise after x-rays revealed no breaks.
But subsequent x-rays last week did reveal a small fracture, delaying Markov's return.
"It's still sore but it it is feeling better every day," Markov said yesterday. "It's just frustrating not playing. I don't like stuff like this.
"Hopefully in four days I'll be ready."
Markov would be a welcome addition to a team that slowly is regaining its health after a spate of injuries. Forward Sergei Berezin (groin) and defenceman Alexander Karpovtsev (thumb) were back in the lineup last night for a 3-3 tie against the Ottawa Senators, while winger Tie Domi (rib muscle) is eyeing tomorrow night's game in Detroit against the Red Wings for his return.
