Tyler Seguin has missed the last two contests for the Dallas Stars with concussion-like symptoms, but reports indicate that he could be ready to go by the time Thursdays game against the Toronto Maple Leafs rolls around. Lindy Ruff spoke to Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News, and the head coach indicated that Seguin was improving and could be ready to play by tomorrow.
Ruff as per Heika’s report:
He’s doing well. He did really well [Monday], he’ll be the one guy who will skate [Wednesday], and there’s a possibility he could play in Toronto.
Heika also reported that Seguin flew out to Toronto ahead of the team to meet up with family and friends. He’ll be on the ice this morning and barring any setbacks, could be back in the lineup tomorrow.
Dallas came up with a monster win over the Chicago Blackhawks sans Seguin last night, which is impressive considering the former Boston Bruin has been the center of the offensive attack for the Stars all season long. The team still managed to post four goals on the defending Stanley Cup champions while coming away with a dramatic win.
If Seguin can’t play against Toronto, his next chance to get back into the lineup will be on Saturday against the Philadelphia Flyers.
