"Ribs is still sore," said Glen Gulutzan today in Frisco. "He's got a significant injury there. He hasn't even started riding the bike yet so he'll be at least another few more days." The Stars play three in four nights here coming up so a few more days sounds to me like he's very likely out for Monday and Tuesday's games, and those are tough ones against the best teams in the league. With some luck hopefully he can be back for the three contests leading up to the All-Star break; winnable games against the Lightning, Wild and Ducks.
