DALLAS (AP) _ Dallas Stars center Mike Modano may miss Wednesday night's home game against Boston because of a bone bruise on his right ankle.

Modano was injured in the first period of Monday night's 7-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues when he was hit by a slap shot by Steve Duchesne. He finished the period, then was taken to a hospital to be examined.

Stars spokesman Larry Kelly said Modano is listed as day-to-day. He will be re-evaluated Wednesday to determine whether he can play against the Bruins.

Modano _ playing under a one-year, $3.5 million contract after rejecting a six-year, $26 million offer _ is among NHL scoring leaders with 23 points on nine goals and 14 assists.
