Goligoski was absent from practice for the second straight day Thursday, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.

Goligoski's day off Wednesday was attributed to maintenance purposes, but it seems he could still be bothered by the lower-body injury that he sustained earlier this month. The Stars haven't indicated as much, but Goligoski is certainly worth keeping a close eye on heading into Saturday's tilt with the Devils.

Goligoski assisted on a pair of third-period goals in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Leafs.

He did his part in contributing to the Stars' comeback attempt, but they'd dug themselves into too deep a hole. While Goli's found twine just once this year, his 11 assists have him just shy of a 40-point pace.

Goligoski (lower body) is expected to play Tuesday against the Maple Leafs, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.

The Stars held Goligoski out of Monday's practice while he tended to the lower-body injury, but it may have been primarily for maintenance purposes. The blueliner has endured a tough season but did finally break through for his first goal last week against the Wild.

Goligoski missed Wednesday's practice due to an illness, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.

The expectation is that Goligoski will be good to go in time for Friday's game with the Wild, but the Stars should relay further word if his illness is more severe than anticipated. The blueliner has yet to find twine in his 22 games this season.
