In a game where the Dallas Stars just got starting goaltender Kari Lehtonen back after missing 12 games due to a groin injury and a contest where the club's two most veteran defensemen Stephane Robidas and Sheldon Souray, continue to be sidelined, could Glen Gulutzan's club now be adding captain Brenden Morrow to the list of injured players?
Quite possibly. The Dallas captain took a puck off his left knee late in the second period and tried to skate in the final 20 minutes but after logging just 21 seconds in his first shift of the final frame, he was officially done for the night.
Of course, Morrow isn't all that far removed from missing six games recovering from an array of injuries, 10 games to be exact and this is the same knee, his left, that bothered him for much of training camp.
But there isn't anything official from the team as of yet when it comes to how their captain is feeling. "I don't even know yet," Gulutzan said. "He took one of those shots off the knee."
