DALLAS (AP) Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin has returned to the lineup for the first time in a month.

Seguin is back for Game 2 of the Stars' opening-round playoff game against Minnesota on Saturday night. He had missed the last 10 games of the regular season and the playoff opener because of a slight cut of his left Achilles suffered March 17.

Seguin had 73 points in 72 games during the regular season.

Minnesota center Erik Haula was back and starting after missing the series opener with a lower-body injury. But the Wild were still without their two top forwards.

Zach Parise, the leading goal scorer for the Wild, and Thomas Vanek were ruled out for the first two games before the series opener. Both have upper-body injuries.
