In explaining that Tyler Seguin would be held out prior to the Dallas Stars’ Game One win over the Wild on Thursday night, coach Lindy Ruff suggested that if it were Game Seven, the All-Star would probably be playing. He also said there was a good chance Seguin would play in Game Two.
So will he?
That answer will have to wait, for now.
On Friday, Seguin told Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News that he was ready to go, almost a month to the day after suffering the cut to his achilles that ended his regular season in mid-March. But the Stars won’t make a decision until Saturday, the morning of Game Two.
Ruff did say this week that Seguin has come a long way, even since his first practice after the injury, on Monday.
"Well, for me there's no comparison,” Ruff said. “Like I said, I thought his first day out on the ice he was OK, and today he just seems to be a lot more fluid, lot more jump, no hesitation. Like I said, those couple extra days are doing him well."
