      Analysis: Cris Nilstorp's demotion suggests Kari Lehtonen (concussion) will be at least ready to serve as the backup goalie Tuesday vs. the Penguins. The 30-year-old saw some action in relief of Tim Thomas in Sunday's loss to the Jets, allowing three goals on 17 shot attempts.

      Analysis: After Kari Lehtonen suffered a head injury Saturday, the Stars went ahead and gave Cris Nilstorp the call to serve as Tim Thomas' backup for the time being. Lehtonen is currently listed as day-to-day, but he took a pretty nasty spill into the crossbar and it wouldn't be all that surprising to see him miss several games. In 39 games with Texas this season, Nilstorp has gone 21-12-4 with a 2.58 GAA and a .915 save percentage.

      News: Cris Nilstorp was waived by the Stars on Saturday, Ren Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
      Analysis: Cris Nilstorp lost out on backup goaltending duties to Dan Ellis and figures to report to AHL Dallas, assuming he clears waivers. His 3.09 GAA and .897 save percentage over five games with the Stars last season aren't likely to attract any NHL suitors.

      Analysis: Cris Nilstorp will continue to provide the Stars with goaltending depth behind Kari Lehtonen, with RFA Richard Bachman presumably in the mix as well. In five appearances with the Stars this past season, the 29-year-old Nilstorp recorded a 1-3-1 record with a .897 save percentage and a 3.09 GAA.
