Dallas forward day-to-day after re-aggravating Achilles injury @NHLdotcom

Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin apparently re-aggravated an injury to his left Achilles tendon and will not play Game 3 of the Western Conference First Round against the Minnesota Wild on Monday (8:30 p.m. ET; CNBC, SN, TVA Sports 2, FS-SW, FS-N, FS-WI).

Seguin is listed as day-to-day, according to coach Lindy Ruff. The Stars lead the best-of-7 series 2-0.

Seguin, who is back in Dallas, returned to the lineup Saturday after missing 11 games with the injury he sustained March 17 against the Tampa Bay Lightning. He played 15:40, had one shot on goal and four hits in his first game of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"This is kind of related [to the previous injury] and might be kind of a fall out of all of the sudden playing at a high pace," Ruff said. "He can't play right now. He was ready [Saturday]. His declaration was he was ready to play, felt great, and then it becomes my decision. It was my decision to play him because I felt he looked good in the couple of previous practices, we got him a couple of extra ones. 

"He just irritated something that rendered him not effective."

Stars defenseman Kris Russell is ill and doubtful for Monday. Russell has no points and a plus-2 rating in two games against the Wild.
