After going with a more experienced lineup the past few games, the Stars are expecting to go with a younger 'Texas Stars' looking lineup tonight in San Antonio.

Mark Stepneski fills us in on the lines:
Antoine Roussel-Cody Eakin-Valeri Nichushkin
Curtis McKenzie-Travis Morin-Chris Mueller
Francis Wathier-Radek Faksa-Matej Stransky
Luke Gazdic-Toby Petersen-Colton Sceviour

Alex Goligoski-Jamie Oleksiak
Trevor Daley-Jyrki Jokipakka
Patrik Nemeth-Cameron Gaunce
Aside from the first line, the forward group should look very Texas-heavy.

Scott Glennie is not in the lineup after suffering a knee injury. He is expected to be out for 4-6 weeks. It's not great news for the young forward, who has been dogged by injuries in his career. He is coming into his final season of his entry level contract and was thought to be on the verge of NHL time.

Finally, Dan Ellis is expected to play the entire game tonight with Jack Campbell backing up.
