Stars' Dillon out for game against Lightning because of lower-body injury

DALLAS - Dallas Stars defenceman Brenden Dillon will not play Saturday afternoon against the Tampa Bay Lightning because of a lower-body injury.

The Stars listed him day to day.

Dillon scored the game-winning goal in Thursday's 4-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes. He leads Dallas with 128 hits and two short-handed goals. His plus-16 rating at home also leads the Stars.

Aaron Rome, who did not dress for the three previous games, would take Dillon's place on the active roster Saturday.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
