The big item today is Texas' goaltending. The Stars look to be without Maxime Lagace for another night as they recalled Philippe Desrosiers this morning. You'd have to believe that Campbell is still likely to start. Desrosiers played an OT game last night in Loveland, Colorado. It's not clear when he would get to Charlotte. If the Stars wanted to push it, they definitely could. However, one thing to note is that Desrosiers allowed three goal on the last ten shots of regulation last night to blow a 5-2 lead for the Steelheads. So there's that.

Stars injury/call up report:
Faksa, Ritchie, Johns (call up)
