DALLAS (AP) The Dallas Stars will again be without All-Star center Tyler Seguin for Game 5 of their first-round playoff series against Minnesota.
Seguin played Game 2 on Saturday after missing a month because of a slight cut of his left Achilles tendon. But he missed Games 3 and 4 in Minnesota and coach Lindy Ruff said he won’t play Friday night when the Stars can wrap up the series with a victory.
Seguin played 15:40 and took one shot in Game 2. But he hasn’t been on the ice since.
Ruff earlier this week described Seguin’s absence as “kind of related” to the Achilles injury and maybe fallout of suddenly playing at a high pace after missing 11 games since getting hurt March 17.
