Loui Eriksson is expected to be back in the lineup tonight for the Stars. However, the team will be without Adam Burish, Nicklas Grossman and Karlis Skrastins. Mark Fistric and Brad Lukowich will start in the two vacant blueline spots.
While that's true it is also true for tomorrow night's game against the Predators. I really don't care who plays either game as long as it's the other guy.
I didn't look ahead at the schedule. Ellie may be more fired up for the Preds since he hasn't beaten them yet. He lost his only game against them and he's beaten Dallas 5 or 6 times. Good thing the next 4 games aren't Nash, T.B, Ott and Philly.
