Scratched: Davis Drewiske, Brad Richardson, Tyler Toffoli.

Notes: Coach Darryl Sutter called out the top line after a 2-0 loss to the Dallas Stars on Thursday and said they have not been playing well for about three games. He recently put Jordan Nolan back in the lineup, but he has rookie Tyler Toffoli at his disposal if he wants more of a scoring threat. ... Quick was in net Thursday and he could hardly be faulted for the two goals allowed. ... Saturday is the 19th anniversary of Wayne Gretzky breaking Gordie Howe’s scoring record in a game against Vancouver.
