Brenden Morrow, who has been nursing a sore groin, was given the option of skipping practice today and decided to skate. He was out for about half of the practice and is expected to be fine for Thursday's game against San Jose.
Stephane Robidas was given the day off for ``maintenance'' after playing 28:34 against Anaheim.
And Kari Lehtonen will start in goal on Thursday. It will be his 15th start in 17 games.
It is amazing that the Stars have lost only three ``man games'' to injury this season. Jamie Benn has been out three games with concussion-like symptoms, but everyone else has been healthy.
In fact, when you consider the fact this team won four games to start the season (some wins that might have been undeserved), has already had a six-game homestand, is getting what appears to be pretty solid goaltending, and has only three man games lost to injury, you do wonder if the record should be better than 9-7-0.
Just something to think about on a Wednesday afternoon.
