No word yet on whether to expect Tomas Vincour back with the team at some point in the near future. Vincour scored a goal on Friday night. With Larsen, the Stars have 8 defenseman now on the roster. With both Souray and Robidas battling foot injuries, there's a chance this is just precautionary. More to come after practice this afternoon.
"How do you deal with the problem? You have to make them aware that they are not good enough – with or without Jamie Benn and Mike Ribeiro in the lineup – to not be a hardworking team.

If we don’t, then we won’t play. That needs to be learned."Glen Gulutzan after the Stars' 2-1 loss to Tampa Bay Friday night
