DALLAS - Here are the projected lineups for Sunday afternoon’s game between the Los Angeles Kings and Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center.
Dustin Brown – Anze Kopitar – Justin Williams
Dwight King – Jarret Stoll – Trevor Lewis
Mike Richards – Tyler Toffoli – Jeff Carter
Kyle Clifford – Colin Fraser – Jordan Nolan
Jake Muzzin – Drew Doughty
Rob Scuderi – Slava Voynov
Keaton Ellerby – Alec Martinez
Scratched: Davis Drewiske, Dustin Penner, Brad Richardson.
Injured: Matt Greene (back), Willie Mitchell (knee).
Notes: Los Angeles Kings coach Darryl Sutter did not speak to the press after Saturday’s 4-3 shootout loss to the Minnesota Wild. So it’s unclear whether he goes with Jonathan Quick or Jonathan Bernier in net on Sunday against the Dallas Stars.
Eric Nystrom – Jamie Benn – Jaromir Jagr
Ray Whitney – Derek Roy – Loui Eriksson
Reilly Smith – Cody Eakin – Erik Cole
Toby Petersen - Antoine Roussel - Tomas Vincour
Brenden Dillon - Stephane Robidas
Alex Goligoski – Trevor Daley
Aaron Rome – Philip Larsen
Scratched: Jordie Benn.
Injured: Vernon Fiddler (charley horse), Ryan Garbutt (hand).
Notes: Fourth-line center Vernon Fiddler is day-to-day after leaving Friday’s 5-3 win over the Minnesota Wild in the first period after crashing into a goalpost. Stars coach Glen Gulutzan termed Fiddler’s injury a charley horse after the game. He did not practice on Saturday.
With Fiddler’s status uncertain for Sunday’s game with the Los Angeles Kings, Dallas recalled wing Toby Petersen from the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League on Saturday. Petersen spent all of last season in the NHL and had 23 points (7-16-23) in 65 games in the AHL this season. He skated on the left side of the Stars’ fourth line in practice on Saturday, with Antoine Roussel at center and Tomas Vincour on the right side.
Center Ryan Garbutt, who has missed the past seven games with a hand injury, skated again on Saturday but Gulutzan said he’s still a few days away from returning. That likely means Garbutt will travel with the Stars on their three-game road trip that will see them face the Anaheim Ducks in consecutive games before ending the trek against the San Jose Sharks on Sunday at HP Pavilion.
Kari Lehtonen will make a 14th straight start in goal for Dallas.
