DALLAS -- Dallas Stars captain Brenden Morrow unexpectedly returned to the lineup for Thursday's game against Anaheim at the American Airlines Center.

Morrow, who missed Tuesday's game and Wednesday's practice with a groin problem, took part in the morning skate on Thursday, and it appeared he'd be in the lineup. But Stars coach Glen Gulutzan told the media that Morrow was definitely out against Anaheim but that he and Jamie Benn, sidelined with a wrist injury, were definite possibilities for Saturday, when the Chicago Blackhawks visit Dallas.

However, Morrow took part in the pregame skate and started the game on a line with rookie Antoine Roussel and newcomer Erik Cole, who was acquired in a February trade with Montreal for Michael Ryder.

Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
