DALLAS (AP) -Dallas Stars center Stu Barnes missed Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinal series against San Jose on Wednesday night, a day after he took a hard hit to the head.
Stars coach Dave Tippett said only that Barnes was ``feeling the effects'' after taking the shot to the head from Jonathan Cheechoo in the third period of the Stars' 2-1 overtime victory that gave them a 3-0 series lead. Team officials wouldn't say if Barnes sustained a concussion. Tippett said the center was day to day.
Barnes remained on the ice against the sideboard for a couple of minutes after the hit, but went to the bench on his own power and returned to play in the game. He seemed to be fine when he spoke to reporters after the game.
