Bill Guerin appears ready to return to play just in time for the Stars because they need all the help they can get to claw back from a 2-0 deficit against the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in their best-of-7 series.

The Dallas forward has been out since he injured his thigh Feb. 27, and it required emergency surgery to restore blood flow to his leg.

"I can finally say I'm in," Guerin told The Dallas Morning News on Sunday after meeting with team trainer Dave Surprenant. "They said there's nothing medically holding me back, so why not? It's been a long hard road and I'm glad to be playing again. I feel very fortunate to still be able to play the game."
