Konowalchuk practices with Avs' second lineAssociated Press
DENVER -- Forward Steve Konowalchuk, who's been out of action since November because of a broken wrist, has been cleared to play as the Colorado Avalanche prepare for the Western Conference semifinals.
Konowalchuk, a 14-year veteran, was hurt Nov. 21 and missed the final 61 games of the regular season and Colorado's five-game upset of the Dallas Stars in the first round.
At the time of his injury, Konowalchuk was off to the best start of his career with 15 points through 21 games.
Konowalchuk has 21 points, including nine goals, in 50 career playoff games.
Konowalchuk skated on the second line at the Avs' practice on Wednesday. Coach Joel Quenneville was not at the workout because he was attending a funeral.
