Brenden Morrow and Mike Ribeiro have been struggling to create scoring chances in recent games. The two veterans, who have been linemates for the better part of five seasons, have combined for 19 points in 17 games. Morrow, who led the Stars with 33 goals last season, has just three goals.

However, the move of Loui Eriksson to their line created spark and scoring chances Friday against Colorado.

"He's pretty easy to play with," Morrow said. "He's good in corners, and he wins a lot of battles. That frees Ribby and I up to maybe go to the net more. Gully is throwing us a bone by letting us play with him."
