Forwards Colton Sceviour and Travis Moen and defenseman Jordie Benn are expected to be healthy scratches Monday night versus the Flames.

Sceviour will sit for a second straight game Monday night and hasn’t scored a point in six straight games. Moen will continue to watch from the sidelines as he hasn’t played in a game since February 17th and has just a goal and six assists in 40 games overall. Jordie Benn will also sit for a second consecutive game and has scored one goal and 14 assists in 60 games this year. Benn has been experiencing back troubles the last few days so him being sidelined shouldn’t come as a surprise. Either way, the trio does not carry any fantasy value.
Mar 30 - 8:35 PM

Cody Eakin is projected to skate between Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn again on Monday night.

Coach Lindy Ruff has liked using Seguin on the wing of late, so Eakin has been able to serve as the center of the top line. He had two assists in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over Vancouver.
Mar 30 - 6:37 PM

Kari Lehtonen will be between the pipes Monday night when the Stars host the Flames.

Lehtonen has won four of the Stars last five games during this critical time as the Stars push for a playoff spot. He will take on a Calgary team that he’s handled successfully in his previous two starts this season, winning both starts and posting a 1.92 goals-against-average and .929 save percentage. On the season he has a 34-15-10 record and a mediocre 2.84 GAA and .907 save percentage.
Mar 30 - 5:11 PM

Trevor Daley registered two assists in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over Vancouver.

Daley picked up the primary assists on arguably the two biggest goals of the game. His first assist came on Tyler Seguin's go-ahead goal in the third period and he also set-up John Klingberg's overtime winner. This was Daley's first game back after missing some time with a knee injury. The 31-year-old has an impressive 16 goals and 35 points in 62 games this season.

John Klingberg scored the overtime winner in Saturday's 4-3 win over Vancouver.

The Stars trailed 2-1 going into the third period but goals from Patrick Eaves and Tyler Seguin gave them a late lead. Radim Vrbata forced overtime by scoring with just over a minute and a half remaining in the game. The 22-year-old has been having a big offensive season as he now has 11 goals and 38 points in just 59 games this season.
Mar 29 - 11:42 AM

Tyler Seguin recorded a goal and an assist as the Stars edged the Canucks on Saturday night 4-3 in overtime.

Seguin also had six shots on goal and a minor penalty in 20:40. The 23-year-old has 34 goals and 69 points this season, which is even more amazing when you consider he's played in only 66 games. John Klingberg got the game winner with 37 seconds left in overtime. Jamie Benn and Patrick Eaves notched the other markers. Trevor Daley and Cody Eakin each tallied two helpers.
Mar 29 - 1:02 AM

Kari Lehtonen gave up three goals on 35 shots in the Stars’ 4-3 overtime win against the Canucks on Saturday night.

Dallas looked like the sure winners until the Canucks tied the game in regulation on the power play with 1:32 remaining. Lehtonen gave up a goal in each period. He has a 2.84 goals-against average and .907 save percentage.
Mar 29 - 1:00 AM

Forward Travis Moen may be back in the Dallas lineup when the Stars visit the Canucks in Vancouver Saturday night.

Dallas coach Lindy Ruff said either Moen or Ryan Garbutt, or both, will return after he made them healthy scratches Wednesday night for a game against Calgary. Moen was taken off injured reserve Monday. On the season, he has a goal and five assists in 40 games. Garbutt has seven goals and 22 points in 60 games. Ruff would not say who would sit out in Vancouver if Moen and-or Garbutt returned.

Defenseman Trevor Daley will be back in the Dallas Stars' lineup when they face the Canucks in Vancouver Saturday night.

Daley has missed the Stars' past 11 games because of a knee injury. Daley is a good fantasy option when healthy. He has 16 goals and 33 points in 61 games this season.

Trevor Daley is still listed as questionable due to a knee injury.

It is not clear if there is a chance Daley will play Saturday night against Vancouver but we wouldn't have him in our lineup until we see him in game action.
Mar 28 - 1:19 PM

Look for Kari Lehtonen to be the starter against the Canucks Saturday night.

Although he had a tough night against the Oilers on Friday allowing four goals on 28 shots in a 4-0 loss, we suspect coach Lindy Ruff will turn back to Lehtonen until the Stars are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. Plus, Lehtonen is 2-0 against Vancouver this season.
Mar 28 - 1:14 PM

Kari Lehtonen had a tough night, making just 24 saves in Friday night's 4-0 loss to Edmonton.

Lehtonen didn't have a good night, and he was even beaten on a penalty shot that didn't feature a deke. But his defense was out-worked in the defensive zone all night long as well, and it showed on the scoreboard. Lehtonen's record drops to 33-15-10 with a .907 save percentage and a 2.84 GAA.
Mar 28 - 12:34 AM

Ryan Garbutt, Trevor Daley, Travis Moen will each be scratched from Friday night's contest with the Edmonton Oilers.

This will be Garbutt's fourth straight game in the stands. He's had a nice season though, posting seven goals, 22 points, 51 PIMs, and 78 hits through 60 games. Daley and Moen meanwhile will continue to recover from their respective injuries.
Mar 27 - 7:21 PM

Kari Lehtonen will get the start against the Edmonton Oilers on Friday night.

Lehtonen comes in with a 33-14-10 record, a .908 save percentage and a 2.82 GAA through 61 games this season. However he also owns just 28 Quality Starts against nine Really Bad Starts. Lehtonen is 12-3-1 record with a .927 save percentage and a 2.23 GAA in 17 career starts versus Edmonton.
Mar 27 - 5:59 PM

Valeri Nichushkin (hip) has been officially assigned to the minors for conditioning.

The Stars revealed their plans regarding Nichushkin a few days ago, so this comes as no surprise. Nichushkin will play for AHL Texas on Friday and if all goes well he'll take part in three games before returning to Dallas.
