It's going to be another mixed lineup tonight for the Stars as the players who were on the ice last night will get tonight off, for the most part. Since today was an optional skate, there were no set lines for the game on display but we do have a good guess at the lineup:
Alex Auld and Marty Turco
Stephane Robidas, Doug Jancevski, Trevor Daley, Karlis Skrastins, Maxime Fortunas, Jeff Woywitka, Garrett Stafford, Ivan Vishnevskiy.
Brenden Morrow, Aaron Gagnon, Ray Sawada, Krys Barch, Toby Petersen, James Neal, Loui Eriksson, Tom Wandell, Steve Ott, Francis Wathier, Brad Richards, Fabian Brunnstrom.
Auld is scheduled to go the full game tonight. The big round of cuts will come tomorrow, as the Stars are set to play Saturday night with as close to the final NHL roster as possible. Mike Modano is hoping to play Saturday, along with Jere Lehtinen.
The news that most of the final cuts will come tomorrow is interesting, especially with Jamie Benn not playing tonight. I suspect however that Benn won't cut until after the final preseason game, and will get one final shot to show his stuff with the NHLers.
The game is on the radio tonight, and Brad will be in attendance to once again provide us with an in-person breakdown.
