08:26 AM ET 03.26 | So, is he saying there's a chance? It may only be a crack, but Erik Karlsson has left the door open to the possibility of his return this season. Five weeks after his Achilles Tendon was sliced by Matt Cooke's skate in Pittsburgh, Karlsson told reporters during the first intermission of Monday's game his recovery is "on schedule," even though others remain amazed at how the Norris Trophy holder is currently getting around. "It's going well ... baby steps," said Karlsson. "But I think overall, it's been feeling pretty good ever since it happened, and I can feel this going forward." Asked when he might try skating again, Karlsson spoke of patience. "Tough to say right now," he said.

Yeah, why the hell risk it. As much as I hate saying it, the team has held together freakin beautifully in the face of their starting goalie, best d-man and best forward all going down. It's a sham if MacLean doesn't take home an Adams.

this is all true

0-4 in the shoot-out this season so far......You didnt think TO was actually going to beat Boston again did you ?

If you think a shootour win over one of only 4 teams without a SO win this year is something to brag about, well, there is just no hope for ya ;)

It is more accurate to say that BOS has twice failed to beat the Leafs in regulation or overtime this week. Which is why Chiarelli is going to do something really Burkish and trade for Iginla

BTW, the other 3 teams without a SO win are all safely out of the playoffs....just sayin'

The Leafs don't need silly skills comps to win meaningful games.

Although the Bruins' second goal was as ugly as it gets from a defensive perspective.

Celine could have been charged with loitering.
