DETROIT — Jan Mursak and Mike Commodore both were scratched from Monday’s lineup.
Mursak played in his first game back from a conditioning stint in Grand Rapids and has sat the last two games. He knows it’s going to be tough for him to crack this lineup.
“There are a lot of good guys and everyone’s playing really good right now, so I just have to wait for my opportunity,” Mursak said. “When it comes I have to grab it and not let it go. I need to just keep working hard in practices and gym and hopefully soon I’ll get another chance.”
Commodore said he’s close to returning from a sore foot and could probably be available to play Tuesday night in Dallas.
