Ott to sit with back spasms

DALLAS  -- The Dallas Stars will be without forward Steve Ott for Thursday's game against the San Jose Sharks at American Airlines Center due to back spasms.

Ott missed the morning skate with what Dallas coach Glen Gulutzan called an illness. Gulutzan said Ott had been fighting an illness during Dallas’ recent three-game swing through Western Canada but he was able to play in all three contests.
   
Ott had played 50 consecutive games for Dallas after missing six straight games in November due to a lower-body injury. He has 10 goals and 33 points in 66 games for the Stars this season.
Quote of the Day

I don’t know if it was more relief for me that [Stamkos] scored or the power play scored. It was a whole compilation of Alka Seltzer.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper after Steven Stamkos broke a long scoring drought and Tampa Bay's struggling power play scored four times in Game 2 at Montreal
