Losing Glennie puts a lot of pressure on the Stars to get Ritchie back in the lineup. Ritchie has been out with a lower body injury and could play this weekend if healthy. Without either, Texas will have to bring either Brenden Troock or Alex Guptill into the lineup. Both Dallas draft picks are on ATOs. The other potential forward fill-in, Derek Hulak, did not travel with the team. He is injured.
Steve Pinizzotto was also suspended for a boarding incident later in the game. He received two games and will miss both Saturday's and next Wednesday's games.
Here's the release:
The American Hockey League today announced that Oklahoma City Barons right wing Steve Pinizzotto has been suspended for two (2) games and Texas Stars right wing Scott Glennie has been suspended for one (1) game as a result of their actions in Game 1 of the Western Conference quarterfinal playoff series between the teams on Apr. 23.
