Mathieu Perreault returned to Winnipeg's lineup in their 2-1 loss to Anaheim on Saturday.

"At first, I thought things were going pretty fast but I managed to find myself going," said Perreault, who had two shots on goal and two hits in 14 minutes and four seconds of ice time. "Yeah. I don't feel like my game is 100 per cent there, as I want it to be. But it was a good start. I feel like I was able to play decent enough. But it wasn't good enough. We've got to be better and we will be." Perreault took Matt Halischuk's spot in the lineup, and he played on a line with Adam Lowry and Lee Stempniak.

Forward Mathieu Perreault says he may play in the second game of the Western Conference First Round against the Ducks in Anaheim Saturday night.

Perreault says he is progressing from a lower-body injury sustained at the end of the regular season. He took part in Winnipeg's optional skate Friday and morning skate Saturday. "Today felt the best I felt in past days, for sure," Perreault said Saturday. "A week ago it was pretty bad. Now it's starting to feel better. We can just be hopeful that within the next couple of games I'll be back. It's getting better every day and today was better than yesterday. I don't know if I'll be able to play or not. But if I don't, I’m sure tomorrow will be even better and we'll go from there." The Jets trail 1-0 in the best-of-seven series against Anaheim.
