Penguins' Gonchar returns to practice
Gonchar sat out Games 5 and 6 of the conference semifinals against Washington after injuring his right knee while being hit by Alex Ovechkin in Game 4. He unexpectedly returned for Game 7 on Wednesday, but his playing time was reduced, and he had not skated until practicing Sunday.
"It looks promising," said Gonchar, who missed three-quarters of the regular season due to a shoulder injury.
