  • Lehtonen was great at home Thursday, turning aside 34 of 36 shots in a 5-2 win over the Predators. The Finnish netminder has now started three games in the last six days, earning two wins while allowing just four goals during that span. That's a whole heck of a lot better than the 17 goals goals he surrendered over five games (four losses) in a 17-day stretch in November, so it's clear that there's a positive correlation between Lehtonen's recent improved performance and his playing time. Dallas plays four times between Saturday and Thursday, so it'll be interesting to see if he and Antti Niemi receive an equal split, or if Lehtonen can keep up the momentum and make at least three of those starts.

  • Lehtonen will guard the crease at home Thursday against the Predators, Mark Stepneski of NHL.com reports. After a stretch of allowing four or more goals in seven of 11 starts, Lehtonen has settled down of late, posting a solid 1.36 GAA and .935 save percentage over his last three outings. The 33-year-old netminder will have no easy task on his hands, however, as he'll face a Predators' team that ranks fifth in the NHL in offensive production (3.00 GF/GP) and has won nine of their last 14 games.

  • Lehtonen saved 18 of 20 shots during Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Flames. It's only fitting that Lehtonen follows up his first shutout of the season with a loss to one of the least efficient offenses in the league. The 33-year-old is a widely-known disappointment, regularly faltering in seemingly minimal action -- he's averaging just 19 shots against in his last five appearances. The hope is that you don't have to trust the 2002 No. 2 pick in your fantasy lineups.

  • Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Starting in net Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Lehtonen will guard the goal for Tuesday night's game against the Flames, Sean Shapiro of NHL.com reports. The goalie play in the Dallas has been scary this season and Lehtonen has certainly played his part in it -- he's recorded a save percentage of less than .900 in eight separate starts this season. The 33-year-old netminder is coming off a 23-save shutout over the Avalanche on Saturday and faces a Calgary team Tuesday that ranks 20th in the league with 2.46 goals per game.

  • Lehtonen stopped all 23 shots he faced in Saturday's win over the Avalanche. It was the first shutout of the season for Lehtonen, who rebounded after losing three straight games. The Finnish netminder advances to 14-7-3 with a .892 save percentage. While his inconsistency is an issue, the Stars are sitting ninth in the Western Conference and are scoring lots of goals. Lehtonen has shown he's capable of stealing games, so he's worth inserting in your lineup whenever he gets the call for Dallas.
