  • Lehtonen led his team onto the ice for warmups, indicating he will start Friday night's game against the Sharks. Lehtonen makes his second start in as many nights, as he is a better option than Antti Niemi by several metrics. He'll go for his third win in his last five starts against a San Jose squad that is averaging just 2.27 goals per game in March.

Patrick Kane beat the veteran Finn in both regulation and the shootout, while Artemi Panarin potted the game-winner in the skills challenge. Lehtonen is 2-1-1 with seven goals allowed in his past four starts, which represents a fantastic improvement after he failed to last even 30 minutes in any of the three outings before this stretch.

    By RotoWire Staff

    Lehtonen will defend the crease for Thursday night's game in Chicago. Over his last three starts, Lehtonen is the owner of a .939 save percentage and 1.68 GAA, both of which are light years better than his season averages. However, he'll have to face one of the NHL's elite Thursday, as the Blackhawks are currently in the running for the President's Trophy and boast 3.09 goals per game in March.

  • Lehtonen turned aside all 30 shots in a 1-0 shutout victory over the Sharks on Monday. It was the second shutout of the season for the Finnish netminder, who was rather impressive in slamming the door on one of the league's most potent offenses. Lehtonen has bounced back admirably after being pulled in three straight games, earning two wins while allowing five goals combined in his last three starts.
