Stars Head Coach Jimmy McGroarty will not be behind the bench for tonight's game, as he serves a one-game suspension imposed by the USHL resulting from an incident in Tuesday's playoff game against the Omaha Lancers. Late in that game, after a Lancer player was called for a check from behind penalty, both teams were involved in an altercation that eventually led to Lincoln's goaltender Kevin Murdock crossing the center line. As a result, the USHL has suspended McGroarty and issued fines to the Stars. The suspension and fine were appealed by the Stars.
