Here are the likely lineups for tonight's game between the Stars and Blue Jackets in Columbus. The injury to Jeff Carter -- the top-line center was placed on injured reserve with a broken bone in his foot -- means major changes for the Jackets, who are looking for their first win.
Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
