DENVER (AP) — The Dallas Stars were without forward Roope Hintz for a second straight game on Friday because of an upper-body injury.

The 27-year-old Hintz left Monday’s 5-1 victory at Colorado after blocking a shot in the first period. Earlier in the game, he went down hard when he was cross-checked by Nathan MacKinnon. Hintz has two goals and four assists in 11 games this post-season.

Colorado was without centre Yakov Trenin, who plays a big role on the penalty kill, because of an upper-body injury he suffered in a 5-3 win at Dallas on Wednesday.

Trenin's classified as day-to-day, coach Jared Bednar said Friday after morning practice.
