Karlis Skrastins 'likely ready' for Saturday
By Mark Stepneski
The Dallas Stars practiced in Los Angeles Friday and both defenseman Karlis Skrastins (leg laceration) and Adam Burish (leg) were on the ice for the session.
Stars coach Marc Crawford said Skrastins, who has missed four games since getting cut on the thigh with a skate, is "likely ready" for Saturday's game against the Kings.
Tomorrow's game is an afternoon tilt, which means no morning skate, so we'll probably find out just prior to game time whether Skrastins definitely will be in the lineup.
We'll have to wait and see on Burish, who has missed the last eight games with a leg injury. He is officially listed as day to day.
