Although Sergei Gonchar didn't make Team Russia, he would still be happy to join them as an injury replacement if they end up needing one.

"Yes, definitely," Gonchar said. "They have been great for me. Growing up in Russia, I never thought about NHL, I only thought about Olympics. That's the biggest dream you're dreaming of. It's disappointing, because this would be special playing at home." Gonchar has represented Russia in four Olympic Games. The 39-year-old defenseman has 12 points in 38 contests this season.

Sergei Gonchar (concussion) will return to the fold on Monday night.

He has missed six games because of concussion-like symptoms. "With that kind of injury, you want to be sure, and I was also out 10 days not doing anything. That's what happens with concussions, you lay around and don't do anything," Gonchar said "So I feel like I waited and worked and my conditioning is good, and I can jump right in now." Gonchar has no goals and 12 assists in 35 games this campaign.

Coach Lindy Ruff thinks Sergei Gonchar could return from his concussion-like symptoms on Monday.

"I would expect Sergei to be back on the Isle (Monday)," Ruff said after Saturday's skate. "He was actually hoping maybe for tonight.
