DALLAS -- Stars forwards Mike Modano and Jere Lehtinen are expected to play Wednesday against Calgary, according to a team official.

Both practiced again Tuesday and appear healthy enough to play. Modano has been hampered by a cracked rib, and Lehtinen had an intercostal muscle injury. Also, Mark Fistric, who took a puck to the ankle at practice Monday, was back on the ice Tuesday.
