If there was any further proof needed that Vancouver Canucks star forward Daniel Sedin has recovered from his concussion, it was provided Thursday in the media room at Rogers Arena.

For more than 13 minutes, Daniel stood at a podium and answered every question Vancouver hockey journalists could throw at him. Thirteen minutes! Why, that's almost a lifetime of interviews for some. Imagine 13 minutes of Todd Bertuzzi. (On second thought, don't.)

So Daniel is fine. He survived his first game back since March 21. He stepped into the heat of a season-saving playoff game for the Canucks and emerged whole. Despite just two full practices since Duncan Keith put him out with an elbow to the face, Daniel played 19:33 Wednesday in the Canucks' 3-1 victory over the L.A. Kings.
