Trevor Daley is expected to miss "weeks" after he was hit knee-on-knee by Islanders forward Matt Martin.

He finished the game with just 43 seconds of ice time after he was injured on his second shift. Coach Lindy Ruff expects Martin to be suspended and he has a hearing scheduled for Wednesday. Daley is a big loss for the Stars. He averages 23:07 of ice time and he has collected personal highs with 16 goals and 33 points in 61 contests.

Cody Eakin scored the overtime winning goal for Dallas in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the New York Islanders.

Eakins also recorded an assist in what was his second multi-point effort in his last three outings. With Erik Cole having been shipped to Detroit and Tyler Sequin sidelined with a knee injury, Eakins could see an expanded offensive role in the short-term.

Kari Lehtonen stopped 35 of 37 shots Tuesday en route to a 3-2 overtime win over the Islanders.

The victory snaps a three-game losing streak for Lehtonen and improves his record to 26-13-10. Despite the shiny win-loss record, Lehtonen possesses a 2.95 GAA and a .906 save percentage; figures which have been more detrimental to his fantasy owners than they have been helpful.

Patrik Nemeth will make his long awaited return to the Dallar Stars lineup on Tuesday night, after a career-threatening arm laceration back in Oct. 2014.

Through 13 career NHL games, the 23 year old Nemeth has no points, eight penalty minutes, 15 blocks, and 21 hits. "Obviously it feels really good (to be back)," Nemeth said. "I didn't even think I was going to be able to play here. To be able to play five games down there (in the American Hockey League) was good, to start playing hockey again. It's just great to be up here."

Kari Lehtonen will get the start against the New York Islanders on Tuesday night.

Through 51 starts this season, Lehtonen has posted a 25-13-10 record with a paltry .905 save percentage and a 2.97 GAA. He's also coming off a nine-start February in which he posted a 4-2-3 record with 26 goals against. No matter how you slice it, 2014-15 has been a poor season for the veteran netminder.

Patrik Nemeth has been summoned from the minors.

He skated in five games with Texas, where he picked up one assist and five shots on goal. It's unclear if he'll play Tuesday for the first time since Oct. 18 when he suffered an arm laceration, but it's possible.

Jhonas Enroth allowed three goals on 22 shots in Sunday's 3-1 loss to Anaheim.

Enroth is now 0-4-0 since being acquired from Buffalo last month. The 26-year-old hasn't played as bad as his numbers would indicate. His record falls to 13-25-2 with a 3.30 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage. Only Coyotes' goaltender Mike Smith has lost more games this season.

Patrick Eaves scored a goal in Dallas' 3-1 loss to Anaheim on Sunday night.

This was Eaves' first game back after missing seven games with a concussion. The 30-year-old tied the game at one with a power play goal in the second period but the Ducks eventually pulled away. Trevor Daley and John Klingberg picked up the assists on Eaves' goal. He now has seven goals and 14 points in 29 games this season.

Mattias Janmark-Nyle was traded from Detroit to the Dallas Stars as part of a package for Erik Cole.

Janmark-Nyle was Detroit's third round pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. The 22-year-old has 13 goals and 36 points with Frolunda HC in the Swedish Hockey League this season.
Mar 1 - 7:47 PM

The Dallas Stars acquired Mattias Backman from the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday.

The Stars got Backman, Mattas Janmark and a second round draft pick in 2015 in exchange for Erik Cole and a conditional third round pick. Backman, 22, was Detroit's fifth round pick in 2011. Backman has four goals and 16 points in 23 games with Linkopings HC of the Swedish Hockey League.
Mar 1 - 7:44 PM

Jhonas Enroth will get the start in Sunday's game against Anaheim.

The 26-year-old has an overall record of 13-24-2 with a 3.31 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage with Buffalo and Dallas.
Mar 1 - 12:18 PM

Patrick Eaves (concussion) practiced with his teammates on Saturday morning.

Eaves has been out since February 13th after he was hit in the head by a puck. The 30-year-old will take part in Sunday's morning skate and he will then decide if he's fit enough to play against Anaheim.

Stars head coach Lindy Ruff said that his goaltending has been the cause of some frustration this season.

"There's nights that he has to steal games, there's nights where he has to out-perform the other guy," Ruff said. "Our goaltending has been tough on our team, and I think that's where the frustration is." By his own admission, Lehtonen has said that he needs to play better. His numbers are way down from where they usually are. The 31-year-old has a respectable 25-13-10 record but his goals-against-average sits at 2.97 and his save percentage is only at .905.
Mar 1 - 11:01 AM

Trevor Daley, who is having a surprisingly solid season, is closing in on some Stars' franchise records.

He is two goals behind Darryl Sydors' team record of 69 and is five assists behind Stephane Robidas' 163 for eighth place on the franchise list. Daley has received more power-play ice time in 2014-15 than in seasons' past and that in part is why he has registered 32 points this campaign. He should no longer be available on the wire, but if he is, grab him.

Dallas coach Lindy Ruff was extremely critical of Kari Lehtonen following the Stars' 5-4 shootout loss to Colorado Friday night.

In fact, Ruff seemed to blame the loss entirely on Lehtonen. "I know this is hard, but the goaltending performance doesn't match the effort of the team,' Ruff said. 'You need goaltending. It's as simple as that. There's nights that he has to steal games, there's nights where he has to out-perform the other guy. Our goaltending has been tough on our team, and I think that's where the frustration is." There is no telling whether Lehtonen will get the start Sunday against Anaheim. It's not as if newly-acquired Jhonas Enroth, who has yet to win in four starts with the Stars, has been any better.
