Karlis Skrastins, who has missed three games with a thigh laceration, participated in a spirited optional practice at HP Pavilion Wednesday and looked great. He said he will have to go though morning skate on Thursday to make sure he is OK, and Stars coach Marc Crawford made the same declaration, but there is a very good chance he will play against the Sharks. In fact, if I was a betting man, I would say he is in for sure. Adam Burish is not. ``He's not a possibility for this one,'' Crawford said. Burish did not skate today, and Crawford said the versatile forward continues to rehab a leg injury. The guess here is it has to do with a fracture somewhere. If Skrastins is healthy, the Stars have to make a decision on whether or not to send back Brad Lukowich, who is up on an emergency call-up from the AHL. Lukowich has looked good in his three games, and the Stars have back-to-back games Saturday and Sunday, so my guess is they burn their third call-up and keep him on the roster for the remainder of the season. That would leave them one regular call-up and any emergency call-ups needed. Keeping Lukowich around could also allow the coaches to play seven defensemen if they felt that was needed in Skrastins' first game back. Kari Lehtonen in goal on Thursday. Everyone else appears healthy, and many of the players (almost all of the top minute guys) took the day to rest.
