Brad Richards, Nicklas Grossman out tonight
By Mark Stepneski
Dallas Stars center Brad Richards and defensemen Nicklas Grossman will not play tonight at Anaheim, according to coach Marc Crawford.
Richards, who has been out with concussion-like symptoms, did not skate this morning in Anaheim. A Stars official said Richards is still feeling symptoms after practicing with the team yesterday in the Phoenix area. They'll see where he stands tomorrow.
This will be the eighth game missed for both players, who were injured on February 13 against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Grossman has been sidelined with a hip injury.
Both players joined the Stars on their current road trip Wednesday and practiced with the team on Thursday. It was the first practice for both players since their injuries.
