Ilya Kovalchuk: Nearing Return?

Update: Though Kovalchuk (shoulder) said he had a "good skate" Wednesday, he is unlikely to play Friday against Ottawa, according to the Record's Tom Gulitti.

Recommendation: The right winger won't play Wednesday against the Bruins, but the report implies that a Kovalchuk return Monday against the Leafs could be plausible.
