Burish and Skrastins will travel, but doubtful for Tuesday
By Mark Stepneski
FRISCO -- Dallas Stars forward Adam Burish (leg) and defenseman Karlis Skrastins (leg laceration) will both travel with the team on its upcoming four-game road trip, but neither player is expected to play Tuesday against the Phoenix Coyotes.
"I doubt that either will be ready to play tomorrow, but the fact that they are traveling with us is a positive sign," said Stars coach Marc Crawford, who added that both players are possibilities during the road trip.
Burish has missed the last six games with his injury and Skrastins has missed two since he was cut on his thigh with a skate in the March 19 Philadelphia game.
Defenseman Nicklas Grossman (knee) and Brian Sutherby (back) will not travel with the team. Crawford said both those players need more off-ice treatment and right now both players will get better treatment staying behind.
