Philip Larsen a game-time decision
By Mark Stepneski
DALLAS -- Dallas Stars defenseman Philip Larsen, who banged his knee into the endboards in Wednesday's 5-2 loss at Winnipeg, is a game-time decision for tonight's game against Chicago at American Airlines Center.
Larsen skated this morning, but if he can't play, then the Stars will insert Jordie Benn into the lineup.
"Jordie Benn is more than capable to go in if we need him," Stars coach Glen Gulutzan said.
Sheldon Souray (charley horse) and Radek Dvorak (ankle) both skated with the team this morning. Neither player will go tonight, but both players should be ready Tuesday.
Kari Lehtonen will start in goal for the Stars tonight. Gulutzan indicated that Lehtonen will play all four games of the homestand.
Corey Crawford gets the nod in net for the Blackhawks.
