* MODANO RESTS: Stars C Mike Modano didn't play last night and is still recovering after being hit from behind by Philadelphia's Jeremy Roenick on Tuesday. The team said Modano won't play Saturday in New Jersey or Sunday in Carolina. He'll fly back to Dallas today.

"Mike has had lingering headaches over the last two days and we want to err on the side of caution with this injury," General Manager Doug Armstrong said.

Dallas initially ruled out a concussion, but now says Modano had a mild concussion. Roenick also gave Modano a concussion in a collision three years ago.
