Injury Update: Eaves May Travel for Game 6 in St. Louis, Seguin Skates on Sunday
Patrick Eaves could be a crucial addition to the Stars' Game 6 line-up. Will he travel to St. Louis?
Patrick Eaves may or may not be an option for Game 6 against the St. Louis Blues, while Tyler Seguin skated on his own as the Dallas Stars took Mother's Day off.
"[Seguin will] skate [Sunday] and just continue day-to-day," coach Lindy Ruff told Mike Heika of The Dallas Morning News.
You'll recall that Eaves joined the team for Friday practice and was a "question mark" for Game 5. His net-front presence would be a welcome enhancement for a Stars team that is struggling to finish chances against the Blues.
"I'm feeling better every day," Eaves said Friday. "Obviously, not as quick as I would like it to be. It is what it is."
Ruff offered this update shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday:
