Friday practice update
By Mark Stepneski
FRISCO -- The Stars had a full practice in Frisco this morning and later today they will fly off to Nashville, where they take on the Predators tomorrow night in the next biggest game of the season.
There's no real significant news on the injury front. The four injured players - Adam Burish (leg), Nicklas Grossman (knee), Karlis Skrastins (leg laceration) and Brian Sutherby (back) - are still out, but improving. None of them practiced today. Burish is doing some light skating.
"It's the 21 guys that are healthy right now," Crawford said. "We're hoping that the other four keep improving."
Based on today's practice, it looks as though the lineup will stay pretty much the same as the last game. Here were the lines that were used.
There were various defense combinations used.
