Brenden Morrow talked a little bit this morning about his injury. The guy looked like he was still in shock over the whole thing, as the worst-case scenario was clearly unexpected.
"I'm just disappointed, little shocked. I don't feel bad. I expected a game or two, but not this."
Morrow's first call was to Joe Nieuwendyk, who had his ACL tear issues during his career. As far as when he can be back, Morrow said, "I've always thought I recovered fast." He said when he had that nasty wrist injury a few seasons ago, "I kept my hopes up. I need that attitude to get through this."
Meanwhile, Stephane Robidas has been given an "A" in Morrow's absence. Good call, as far as I'm concerned. Robidas has earned that, given his play and his heart. Landon Wilson talked about coming back to Dallas, as he's been looking forward to this opportunity for a while. He's done some good things with Grand Rapids, so we'll see what help he can give the Stars. Doug Janik, meanwhile, will probably be in the lineup tonight. Dave Tippett was asked if seven defensemen was a possibility tonight, and he didn't seem keen on the idea. So wouldn't be surprised if Matt Niskanen is out.
