Matt Duchene skated today and is expected to practice with the team tomorrow. Skipper Joe is "hopeful" that Duchene will be able to play Game 1 on Wednesday. I say, bank on it.
The news is not so good on David Jones and Peter Mueller. Jones is still making progress, but has been ruled out for game 1. Mueller, still suffering from a gentlemanly concussion, exercised for the first time today. While he's making progress, it doesn't sound like his return is imminent.
