Thursday practice update
By Mark Stepneski
FRISCO -- The Stars were back on the ice for a full practice this morning as they get ready to head back out on the road for games against Anaheim, Los Angeles and Phoenix.
Defenseman Sheldon Souray was the only player not on the ice. The Stars said it was a maintenance day because Souray was given a shot to deal with a wrist issue.
"He has to wait 24 hours and he'll be fine. That's why he elected to skate yesterday," said Stars coach Glen Gulutzan. "He'll skate tomorrow in the pregame. We just have to wait 24 hours after he got the needle for his wrist. His wrist bugs him from time to time. He has to get it done and we just have to manage the time."
Kari Lehtonen will get the start in goal tomorrow against Anaheim and Gulutzan said they'll see how that goes before deciding on how to handle Saturday's game in Los Angeles.
"We feel with the rest that Kari is ready to go,"said Gulutzan. "It's an important road trip, but at some time we're going to see [Andrew Raycroft] come in here, too."
