Tyler Seguin skates with Stars before Game 7

Kari Lehtonen stood on his head making 35 saves to force a game seven with St. Louis while Viktor Arvidsson made his 1st career playoff goal count sinking the Sharks in OT as Chris Tierney potted a pair in a losing effort.

He looked good out there, dancing around with his teammates at Tuesday’s optional practice.

So, will Tyler Seguin — missing in action since April 16 — make a dramatic return in Wednesday’s Game 7 in Dallas?

“He’s not ready to play yet,” Lindy Ruff told reporters after the skate. The coach did say that Tuesday’s practice was a positive step for Seguin.

The No. 1 centre exploded for 33 goals and 73 points in 72 games this season but fell to an Achilles tear in mid-March.

Seguin returned to skate 15:40 in the Stars’ Game 2 victory over Minnesota in Round 1, but then… nothing.

Officially, Seguin is listed as day-to-day with a vague “lower-body injury,” but he did not travel with the team to St. Louis for Monday’s must-win Game 6.

Dallas held on to defeat the Blues 3-2 on the road, forcing a seventh game.

Ruff has said the injury that is now keeping Seguin out is different from the severed Achilles but that it may be related.

Winger Patrick Eaves, who missed four consecutive games, did return for Dallas in Game 6.
