Mathieu Perreault scored a goal in his return to the lineup on Saturday night.

Perreault tallied a power-play goal in Winnipeg's 6-2 win over Nashville. He had been sidelined since Winnipeg's playoff opener after he suffered an upper-body injury, but felt he could have played in Game 4 versus the Predators. Perreault logged 12:46 of ice time in Game 5 on Saturday.

Mathieu Perreault will suit up in Game 5 against the Nashville Predators on Saturday night.

Perreault missed seven straight games because of an upper-body injury. Even though he was healthy enough to play in the last game, head coach Paul Maurice still decided not to insert him into the lineup. He's skating on a line with Bryan Little and Joel Armia. The 30-year-old had 17 goals and 39 points in 70 games during the regular season.

Mathieu Perreault probably won't make his return Thursday night.

Perreault has been cleared medically after being sidelined for nearly a month with an upper-body injury.
