BLUE JACKETS (1-2-0) at STARS (2-1-1)
8 p.m. ET; FS-O, FS-SW, NHL.TV
Blue Jackets team scope
Defenseman Ryan Murray will not play for the Columbus Blue Jackets because of an upper-body injury sustained in a 3-2 win against the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday. Murray was injured when he was pinned to the boards and tangled up with Chicago defenseman Brent Seabrook. He will be replaced by Dalton Prout, who was a healthy scratch Friday. Rookie defenseman Zach Werenski had a goal and an assist against Chicago and will have an expanded role with Murray out. "He's going to play back-to-back now," coach John Tortorella said Friday. "I'll be interested to see how he handles that," "Losing (Murray) here really puts some stress on our 'D'."
Stars team scope
Dallas Stars forwards Patrick Sharp (concussion) and Patrick Eaves (lower body) are out after each was injured against the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday. Forward Ales Hemsky will make his season debut after missing the first four games with a groin injury. "It's nice to be back and it's been a while," Hemsky said. Gemel Smith was called up from the American Hockey League and will make his NHL debut. Smith played in all seven preseason games for Dallas. "It helped me with confidence and me knowing I can kind of play at this level," Smith said. Kari Lehtonen will make his third straight start for Dallas.
