Everyone that was out today being back for game one, by definition, includes Tarasenko. I don't see him coming back 2-3 weeks ahead of schedule, so I'm calling bullshit. Hitch is lying for one reason or another.
I actually wouldn't be surprised to see him. The talk has been that he's way ahead of schedule. I don't recall who, but somebody tweeted that he might be back BEFORE the playoffs. I thought that was crazy, but before the end of the round may be within reach. Or not. I'm hoping that he still will get back this series though.
If Vova is back for the series, that could be the game changer right there. But I'll wait and see on that. Also, the biggest part of his game is his wickedly deceptive shot. With his hand(s) not necessarily 100%, how would that affect his output?
