The Dallas Stars could be juggling their forward lines a bit tonight. Jaromir Jagr is out due to a lower back injury, and the Stars could be down another forward.

Jagr, who left Thursday’s game against Chicago late in the third period, didn’t practice Friday and was not on the ice this morning at American Airlines Center. He could return Monday in Columbus, but he won’t play tonight against the Blues.

“It’s a lower back injury that needs to be taken care of probably with a couple days rest,” Stars coach Glen Gulutzan said.

Gulutzan would not identify the other forward who might not play, but said it would be a game-time decision.
