Mark Fistric, Adam Pardy Healthy Scratches vs. New York Islanders


The Stars are sticking with what's worked the past few games, as well as likely trying to get a good, hard look at Philip Larsen before decisions have to be made. While Stars fans were likely hoping for some fireworks with Fistric playing against the Islanders, this is a great move to maintain chemistry with what's working and not allow the team to get caught up in the wrong emotions. "We've won a couple of games, our guys are healthy and some guys have had a day of rest, so we'll keep things the same,'' Gulutzan said. "As we approach this Christmas break, there are going to be decisions for roster spots on our club, and we want to make sure we have the information. As long as we're winning right now, we're going to keep this lineup.''
