07:28 AM ET 08.05 | One year ago, Lars Eller had just about everything lined up for a career year -- and he delivered with 30 points in 46 games. And then suddenly, it came to a sickening, bloody end at the Bell Centre in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals, Eller flattened by Ottawa defenceman Eric Gryba at the Canadiens blue line. Eller was knocked colder than a banker's heart, suffering a concussion, broken nose and shattered teeth that marked the beginning of the Canadiens' playoff end. ... He expects to be skating within the next week, picking up the pace as more players return to town. "I feel great, completely healed," Eller said. "I did some more testing in Brossard (in mid- to late May) to make sure everything was back to normal."
