A few notes as the Stars get ready to take on the Carolina Hurricanes tonight. The game will be nationally televised on Versus starting at 6:30 p.m. Central Time.
Carolina, which played yesterday in Washington, is playing its fourth game in six days. The Stars had yesterday off, but are playing their fourth in six days as well, all of them in different cities.
It looks like it will Kari Lehtonen vs. Cam Ward.
A tidbit from ESPN Stats and Research:
Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen has not enjoyed success in Carolina as he's just 1-5-1 in 7 career games there, all when he was with the Atlanta Thrashers. His last win in Carolina came on January 13, 2007.
Stars forward Krys Barch (foot) skated today, but is still out.
Stars defenseman Mark Fistric is still out with a groin injury. He's back in Dallas.
