Saturday morning skate: Nilstorp in goal vs. Sharks

Cristopher Nilstorp will get the start in goal tonight when the Dallas Stars take on the San Jose Sharks at American Airlines Center.

It will be the second straight start for Nilstorp, who stopped 18 of 22 shots in Thursday’s 4-3 loss to Vancouver.

“Mental toughness is a big thing at this level. He’s proven that he can play and we want to give him the opportunity tonight,” said Stars coach Glen Gulutzan. “We know he’s going to respond because he’s a real good goaltender. That was our thought process tonight. We didn’t want to go back and forth with things.”

It appears the Stars’ will roll out the same lineup of forwards and defensemen as Thursday’s game, meaning Matt Fraser will be the lone healthy scratch. Fraser has been scratched both games since being called up from the Texas Stars earlier this week.

“The one thing I’ve said about our young guys and even in the year past, you could tell who they were in practice. OK, there’s a young guy,” Gulutzan said. “When we practice now and we’re going hard the last few days and Matty’s been here, you can’t tell a difference. He fits right in and I think that’s a real good sign. He has some assets that other guys don’t have. He shoots the puck. I also think it’s real good experience for him to be here and be around the guys and get his feet wet. He’ll get in at some point.”
