Defenseman Marc Methot and forward Mattias Janmark appear ready to return tonight when the Dallas Stars take on the Pittsburgh Penguins at PPG Paints Arena.
Methot (sore knee) and Janmark (illness), who both were late scratches in Friday night's 2-1 win over Anaheim at American Airlines Center, took part in Sunday morning's skate in Pittsburgh.
"We got surprised last time, so hopefully we don't get surprised this time," Stars coach Ken Hitchcock said. "But both guys feel much better. If both guys make it through the afternoon, then we'll be in good shape, and both guys will be in."
