Friday practice update

FRISCO -- Pretty quiet day at Dallas Stars practice in Frisco this morning. Michael Ryder, Sheldon Souray and Vernon Fiddler were given maintenance days. The Stars have played a lot of games here recently and some guys are getting time off to rest some bumps and bruises.

Defenseman Alex Goligoski (broken thumb) is scheduled to get his cast off today and Stars coach Glen Gulutzan said he believes Goligoski will play at some point on the upcoming five-game road trip.

Captain Brenden Morrow (back) and Trevor Daley (back) are expected to return at some point during that trip as well.

Andrew Raycroft will be in goal tomorrow against the New York Islanders.
