The Dallas Stars' line configurations, stop me if you've heard this one before, are in for another tumultuous change, it seems.

Derek Roy is expected to return to the lineup against the Colorado Avalanche after missing three games with a groin issue, and if the lines from morning skate being reported by Mike Heika are any indication, Glen Gulutzan will use a (finally) full complement of centers in an attempt to create a more balanced offensive attack.

At 1.78 goals-per-game the Stars rank 29th in the NHL ahead of only the Nashville Predators, and they're averaging less than a goal-per-game on the road (4 goals in 5 road games).
