ANAHEIM -- Winnipeg Jets forward Mathieu Perreault returned to the lineup for Game 2 of the Western Conference First Round against the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday at Honda Center.

Perreault was a game-time decision because of a lower-body injury sustained at the end of the regular season. He sat out Game 1, but took pregame line rushes with left wing Adam Lowry and right wing Lee Stempniak.

Perreault had 18 goals and 23 assists in 62 regular-season games for the Jets. He had 43 points in 69 games for Anaheim in 2013-14.

The Jets scratched forward Matt Halischuk, who dressed in place of Perreault in Game 1.

Winnipeg also made a chance on defense, dressing Adam Pardy and scratching Ben Chiarot.

Anaheim dressed the same lineup as in Game 1. The Ducks lead the best-of-7 series 1-0.
