Just announced that the Dallas Stars will possibly be without another forward tonight. With multiple guys still out of the lineup, James Neal is now doubtful for tonight’s game with what is being called an “upper body injury” that happened yesterday during practice. Coach Crawford said “He got a little dinged up in practice yesterday” and now the Stars could be without one of their top offensive players.
Tom Wandell is expected to be back after missing the last four games with a shoulder injury, but the team is still without Burish, Benn, Barch, and Peterson. So the team could skate with only 11 forwards and 7 D-men tonight.
Tomas Vincour has been called up and will play in his first NHL game tonight as the team hosts the rival Coyotes. Vincour had an impressive preseason in my opinion, and I look forward to seeing how he does. With all the injuries I hope he gets a chance to play a couple games and we can see where he is at. He was the Stars 5th round pick in 2009, and has tallied 12 points in 44 games this year in his first year in the AHL.
