"Today was a big step in the right direction, so I am hopeful," Sedin said.
"He practiced well today," Tortorella said. "We'll wait until tomorrow, but right now I think he'll be able to play, which is good."
The Canucks are six points behind the Dallas Stars for the second Western Conference wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs with five games left. The Stars hold a game in hand.
Before Sedin was injured in a 4-2 win against the Buffalo Sabres on March 23, he was on a three-game point streak, his longest since late October. He has 10 goals and 46 points in 65 games.
