"I thought [Mueller and Morin] gave us a good consistent effort," said Coach Lindy Ruff. "Obviously we're a little thin up the middle of the ice. I thought both gave us a good effort."
Erik Cole, asked about his line specifically with Morin and Sceviour, added, "We were pretty good. I think that getting back to the bench and communicating about where to put pucks and where to look for those pucks helped. I thought it was definitely good. We created a lot. I thought we had some good opportunities."
Colton Sceviour went second in the shootout for Dallas, in between Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin. Sceviour was denied on his usual forehand-backhand attempt.
All three may stay in the lineup for some time in Dallas as Shawn Horcoff is going to "take some time" to recover and Cody Eakin is day-to-day. For Eakin, it's a question of whether he feels comfortable with a skate on his foot, according to Coach Ruff, which indicates a foot issue. The Stars head off to Winnipeg tomorrow and would definitely want to insurance of a 13th forward in case Eakin can't go on Sunday against the Jets.
