Thursday morning skate update

It looks like Philip Larsen will be in tonight on defense tonight for the Dallas Stars as they take on the Los Angeles Kings. Jeff Woywitka appears to be the healthy scratch and Stephane Robidas, of course, is out due to the one game suspension.

Based on the skate this morning, it looks as if the Stars will go with the same set of forwards again, which will make Krys Barch the healthy scratch up front.

Kari Lehtonen gets the start in goal, his ninth straight start to open the season.

The Kings did not skate this morning. They played in Chicago last night, losing 3-1 to the Blackhawks. No Drew Doughty for Los Angeles. He is out with a what is believed to be a concussion.
