Timmy’s in town, but Kari starts
Acquired from Florida yesterday, Thomas will take the place of the outgoing Dan Ellis (now a member of the Panthers) and, according to head coach Lindy Ruff, will have the opportunity for some playing time with the Stars.
“I want to give Tim the opportunity to play,” Stars bench boss Lindy Ruff said, per the Dallas Morning News. “If he plays well, I’ll give him the chance to play.”
Zatkoff in for Pens
Jeff Zatkoff will be in goal for Pittsburgh tonight when it takes on the Sharks in San Jose.
Zatkoff hasn’t started since Jan. 30 but his last outing was a good one, stopping 30 of 31 shots in a win over the Kings. The former Miami of Ohio standout is 9-2-1 on the year with a 2.64 GAA and .909 save percentage.
