Dallas Stars coach Glen Gulutzan reconsidered his options and changed the plan for Steve Ott , putting him on a line with center Jamie Benn and winger Michael Ryder for Colorado . Loui Eriksson moves to a line that includes center Mike Ribeiro and winger Brenden Morrow.

Gulutzan did that to get Eriksson back on the right side, where he has been effective. This also allows Ott to play on his natural left side and create more balance on the lines.
