Adam Burish out Sunday
By Mark Stepneski
Dallas Stars forward Adam Burish will miss Sunday's game with a lower body injury, Stars coach Marc Crawford said after the team practiced in Euless today.
"He's out tomorrow for sure," Crawford said."It's from the blocked shot a few weeks ago. He's been playing with lots of pain. We're shutting him down for tomorrow and we'll see where he's at."
Burish had been back in the lineup for the last eight games after missing eight before that with a fractured orbital bone. The Stars have been 6-0-2 in those eight games since Burish had been back since the previous injury.
"We'd love to have Adam in because we think Adam makes a difference to our club," Crawford said. "He's just not able to play. Last night he didn't have the speed to be able to contribute. We'd love to have him. He's been one of the guys that his energy he contributes around the team is really a positive. You can't discount how important that is to a team. We're definitely going to continue to have him around."
