Grossman out tonight against Islanders

Stars defenseman Nicklas Grossman will not play tonight against the New York Islanders with an undisclosed injury suffered in the Rangers game, according to a Stars official. Grossman, who appeared to get hit in the knee in the game, is listed as day-to-day.

Grossman's injury puts Jeff Woywitka and Matt Niskanen in the lineup tonight. Grossman was a key part of the Stars' top defensive pair, playing with No. 1 defenseman Stephane Robidas.

Grossman, who turns 25 later this month, has four assists and is plus-5 for the Stars in 41 games this season.
