Brenden Morrow to miss at least three games

2/6/2012

FRISCO -- Stars captain Brenden Morrow, who missed Saturday's game with a neck/shoulder issue, is expected to miss at least the next three games.

The Stars placed Morrow on injured reserve Friday, and he would have been eligible to come off IR in time to play during the Stars upcoming two-game road trip later this week.

But Stars coach Glen Gulutzan said he doesn't expect Morrow to be ready when the Stars hit the road later this week for games at Columbus (Thursday) and at the Sabres (Friday).

"We're not looking for him this trip. I don't think he'll be on this trip with us," Gulutzan said. "We're just preparing like he is not going to be here, and we'll wait to see what transpires over the next five or six days."

Morrow missed one game break prior to the All-Star break and six games earlier this season due to the same issue.

Here's how Monday's practice lineup looked. The only notable change was that Adam Burish and Tomas Vincour flipped lines with Burish moving up to the third line with Vernon Fiddler and Radek Dvorak.
