Roy says he will know more about Duchene's potential playing status Sunday.
Duchene has been out since damaging the MCL in his left knee when he ran into a teammate against San Jose on March 29. He's been skating on his own all week, before joining the team Saturday hours before a pivotal game in a series tied at 2.
Rookie Nathan MacKinnon says that knowing Duchene may return at some point is "definitely a huge momentum boost for us."
The Avs have struggled to score on Wild goaltender Darcy Kuemper. Duchene had 70 points in the regular season.
For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.
