He looked fine at the morning skate to me, but the Stars have announced that Marty Turco is out with flu-like symptoms.
He wasn't going to play tonight, anyway, but this affects Saturday.
They aren't saying if he will be going to Nashville, but they are getting on a plane after this game, and my guess is that's not the best place for a person with flu. So, logic tells me there will be no Turco tomorrow, either.
Matt Climie has been recalled from Texas (AHL).
Here's the press release:
Frisco, Tex. - The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has recalled goaltender Matt Climie on emergency conditions from the Texas Stars - Dallas' primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL). Dallas goaltender Marty Turco has flu-like symptoms and is not available for tonight's game against Florida -- a step being taken as a precautionary measure to safeguard Turco's welfare and that of the team.
Climie, 26, has appeared in five games for Texas, going 2-1-2 with a goals-against-average (GAA) of 1.35 and a save percentage of .954. He stopped all 25 shots he faced on Oct. 15 vs. Grand Rapids, earning the first shutout in Texas Stars history and his first at the AHL level. Climie made his NHL debut at the end of last season, appearing in three games for Dallas with a record of 2-1-0 and a 2.92 GAA.
The 6-3, 205-pound native of Luduc, Alta., signed as a free agent with Dallas on March 20, 2008.
The Dallas Stars will take on the Florida Panthers tonight at American Airlines Center (7:30 pm, FOX Sports Southwest, Sports Radio 1310 The Ticket).
