Dallas Stars goalie Marty Turco was ruled out for Saturday's game and will not make the trip to Nashville.

Turco is suffering from flu-like symptoms, prompting the Stars to call up Matt Climie from the Texas Stars of the AHL for Friday's game against Florida.

Alex Auld started the team's 6-5 shootout loss to the Panthers, making 24 saves.

Climie, 26, is 2-1-2 with a 1.35 goals-against average for Texas this season. He made his NHL debut near the end of last season. He was 2-1-0 in three games with a 2.92 GAA.
