Bishop will start Wednesday against the Ducks.
Hanzal (general soreness) will not play against the Sharks on Sunday.
Roussel (back) will return to the lineup against the Sharks on Sunday.
Bishop will start Sunday in San Jose.
Methot (knee) will make his return to the Stars' lineup on Friday.
Methot hasn't played a game since January 4th, and has no points in just 16 games for the Stars this season. He is expected to take Julius Honka's spot in the lineup.
Roussel (back) will not play Friday vs. the Blues.
Roussel has 14 points (5G/9A) in 49 games for the Stars this season. Gemel Smith is expected to take his spot in the lineup.
The Stars have recalled Dickinson from Texas (AHL).
Bishop will start vs. the Blues on Friday.
Bishop had a disappointing game against the Canucks on Sunday, stopping just 16 of 20 shots before being pulled in favour of Kari Lehtonen. It was an unfortunate end to a strong stretch of games for Bishop, who had been 6-3-1 with a .934 SV% over his previous ten starts. He has a decent matchup tonight at home against the Blues.
Methot (knee) is expected to return to the Stars lineup on Friday.
Methot has been limited to 16 games this season but he is on-track to play on Friday, barring a setback. Methot’s return will help the Stars defence much more than it will help any fantasy team.
Honka (upper-body) will be back in the Stars lineup on Sunday.
Hanzal (undisclosed) will draw back into the Stars lineup on Sunday.
Bishop will start Sunday vs. the Canucks.
Hanzal will not play Friday because of an undisclosed injury.
Smith will be back in the Stars lineup on Friday.
Smith has been a healthy scratch for the last three games, but will be back in the lineup vs. the Penguins. Smith has four goals and five assists in 31 games this season. There’s no word on who will come out in favour of Smith, but head coach Ken Hitchcock said Smith will play.
Dickinson will be back in the Stars lineup on Friday.
Dickinson has been a healthy scratch for the last two games, but will be back in the lineup vs. the Penguins. Dickinson has not registered a point in 12 games with the Stars. There’s no word on who will come out in favour of Dickinson, but head coach Ken Hitchcock said Dickinson will play.
Heatherington will draw into the Stars lineup on Friday.
Heatherington has been a healthy scratch for the last five games but head coach Ken Hitchcock said that he will be back in tonight, on the second game of a back-to-back. Julius Honka left yesterday’s game with an upper-body injury, so it seems highly unlikely that he will play tonight. Regardless of who comes out, Heatherington will be back in. He has no points in four games with the Stars.
Honka left Thursday’s game with an upper-body injury and is questionable for Friday.
Honka played just 6:06 TOI before leaving last night’s game in Chicago with an upper-body injury. Honka did not return to the game and is questionable for Friday’s game vs. the Penguins. Head coach Ken Hitchcock already said that Dillon Heatherington will play tonight, so it seems highly unlikely that Honka will play.
Lehtonen will start Friday vs. the Penguins.
Lehtonen stopped 30 of 31 shots in the Stars win over the Wild on Saturday. Lehtonen has won four straight games while posting a really impressive 1.24 GAA and .954 SV%. Ken Hitchcock’s coaching style has served Lehtonen very well. During four seasons under Lindy Ruff, Lehtonen had a 2.73 GAA and .908 SV% in 232 games and in his first 17 games with Hitchcock behind the bench he sits with a 2.22 GAA and .919 SV%.
Bishop will start Thursday in Chicago.
Bishop stopped 31 of 32 shots in the Stars win over the Rangers on Monday. Bishop hasn’t been great on the road this season, going 5-7-2 with a 3.09 GAA and .894 SV%. The 31-year-old has not lost to the Blackhawks this season, going 3-0-0 with a 1.62 GAA and .938 SV% in three games vs. Chicago.
