About the Stars

The Stars (2-2-1) lost 4-3 to St. Louis Saturday night in Dallas. The Stars were without Jaromir Jagr and Derek Roy due to injury issues. Jamie Benn, signed to a contract on Thursday, was still waiting for immigration paperwork to be wrapped up. And Kari Lehtonen didn’t start in goal due to a minor tweak.

Still, the Stars made a game of it. After giving up three unanswered goals in the second period to fall behind 4-2, the Stars put on a strong push in the third period to pull within a goal, but couldn’t get the equalizer.

“Some top end guys weren’t in our lineup. I’m pretty proud of the effort that the guys put in,”

said Stars captain Brenden Morrow. “It’s a real tough team to play against and we held right in there until the end.”

Jamie Benn’s status for Monday is still up in the air. His immigration paperwork still needs to be processed so he can get a work visa, be placed on the active roster and be eligible to play.

Lehtonen will start in goal.

The Stars placed G Cristopher Nilstorp, who suffered a groin injury in Saturday’s game, on IR Sunday and recalled G Richard Bachman from Texas of the AHL.

Injuries: RW Jaromir Jagr (back/hip) is probable. Derek Roy (groin) is questionable. G Cristopher Nilstorp (groin) is out.
