DALLAS -- Stars left wing Eric Nystrom, who has missed the last three game with a leg laceration, will return to the lineup for tonight's crucial game against the San Jose Sharks at American Airlines Center.

Nystrom was injured in the March 24 game against Calgary when he was cut by the skate of Flames goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff.

Right wing Radek Dvorak, who has missed the last four games with an ankle injury, skated this morning and will be a game-time decision.

Defenseman Philip Larsen, who missed Monday's practice due to illness, skated this morning, but he is listed as a game-time decision as well.

Kari Lehtonen, of course is in net for the Stars.

Here's a projected Dallas lineup if both Dvorak and Larsen play.

Eriksson-Ribeiro-Ryder
Ott-Benn-Burish
Nystrom-Fiddler-Dvorak
Morrow-Dowell-Vincour or Garbutt

Souray-Robidas
Fistric-Daley
Goligoski-Larsen

Lehtonen
