Projected lineups for Stars, Blue Jackets
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.

Brenden Morrow - Mike Ribeiro - Michael Ryder
Steve Ott - Jamie Benn - Loui Eriksson
Adam Burish - Vernon Fiddler - Radek Dvorak
Tom Wandell - Jake Dowell - Eric Nystrom

Alex Goligoski - Adam Pardy
Sheldon Souray - Stephane Robidas
Nicklas Grossman - Trevor Daley

Forwards Krystofer Barch and Toby Petersen, and defenseman Mark Fistric will be the scratches

Kari Lehtonen will start in goal, with Andrew Raycroft the backup.

R.J. Umberger - Derick Brassard - Rick Nash
Vinny Prospal - Antoine Vermette - Alexandre Giroux
Maksim Mayorov - Samuel Pahlsson - Derek Dorsett
Derek MacKenzie - Ryan Johansen - Cody Bass

Fedor Tyutin - David Savard
Radek Martinek - Marc Methot
Kris Russell - Grant Clitsome

Steve Mason will start in goal. Mathieu Corbeil, the Jackets' 2009 fourth-round pick, was called up from Saint John of the QMJHL under emergency conditions to serve as the backup.

Quote of the Day

Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
