As it just so happens, the Idaho Steelheads haven't played a single game since the Stars recalled Pat Nagle. That's a good thing for the Steelies as they also have a single goaltender remaining on the roster without him. Texas announced today that they have sent Pat Nagle back to Boise, at least for today's game. According to sources, it is expected that Nagle will start for Idaho against the Condors today at 6:10 PM CST.

It is unclear at this point if Nagle will return to backup Josh Robinson on Wednesday or remain in Boise. Cristopher Nilstorp was not in a boot or on crutches after Saturday's game. It is believed he could return for the weekend set against Toronto and OKC.

Two Griffins suspended following Friday actions

While it was not an automatic review, the Stars did get  a review of the hit that knocked Justin Dowling out of the lineup for last night's game. Brennan Evans, who received a five minute major and a game misconduct for the hit, also received a three game suspension starting with today'sg ame in San Antonio.

Triston Grant also received a one game suspension for a slew foot on Texas on Friday. He will also sit out today's game at San Antonio. Unfortunately, the Stars saw both of those players in the lineup against them last night in Cedar Park.
