The Stars had a very light morning skate at the Saddledome.
Andrew Raycroft skated with Matt Niskanen, Francis Wathier and Aaron Gagnon.
Raycroft is expected to start in net, although he said he would not wear his new mask yet. He said he's still breaking it in. Raycroft is 8-3-0 with a 2.05 GAA and .934 save percentage. Raycroft last played Jan. 9 at Minnesota when he had 26 saves in 4-0 win.
Niskanen is expected to return to play tonight after missing six games with a hand injury he suffered in his collision with teammate Karlis Skrastins. He said he has gone through full contact and is feeling good.
Coach Marc Crawford said a few players are dinged up, and he could insert Niskanen, as well as one forward. He declined to elaborate on who might be hurt or what the injuries might be.
Bottom line, there may be possibly some possible changes to the lineup tonight _ if that's specific enough.
Henrik Karlsson is expected to be in net for the Flames. He is 3-3-4 with a 2.52 GAA and .907 save percentage.
