  • Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Loses second straight game
    By RotoWire Staff

    Lehtonen dropped his second consecutive decision, allowing four goals on 21 shots in a 4-2 loss against the Blues on Saturday. St. Louis found the back of the net three times in the first 15 minutes of the game, giving them a nice early cushion. Pressing to come back the rest of the night, Dallas played most of the second and third periods in the offensive zone, so Lehtonen faced just 12 shots in the final 40 minutes. The Finnish goaltender is off to a rough start, having yielded six goals on just 32 shots in two appearances.

  • Lehtnonen will start in goal against host St. Louis on Saturday, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic St. Louis reports. A cut to the head of No. 1 netminder Ben Bishop forced Lehtonen into duty against the expansion Golden Knights on Friday night, and he took a loss after allowing two third-period goals to James Neal. However, as noted in this latest report, coach Ken Hitchcock would've gone with Lehtonen against St. Louis anyway; simply because he wants to rotate the two netminders in back-to-back sets.

  • Lehtonen relieved an injured Ben Bishop (head laceration) in Friday's home game against the Golden Knights, but he took the loss by allowing two goals on 11 shots. The Finnish tender was forced into duty early in the third period after Bishop was struck in the mask with the puck and bloodied. He promptly allowed a goal from James Neal and then Neal got him a second time by going top shelf. Unfortunately for Lehtonen, he'll go down in the books as the first netminder to lose to the Golden Knights, and in the season opener of all times.

  • Lehtonen stopped 32 of 33 Minnesota shots in Tuesday's preseason win. In his last preseason appearance, Lehtonen posted a shutout, giving him five straight scoreless periods until Minnesota's Jason Zucker broke the streak in the third period Tuesday. That's a good start for Lehtonen, who has not been a model of consistency over the last few seasons. Nonetheless, he's slated to back up Ben Bishop this year.

  • Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Pitches shutout
    By RotoWire Staff

    Lehtonen saved all 21 shots in Saturday's 4-0 preseason road win over the Blues. Lehtonen has now appeared in two exhibition games, having faced divisional foes in the Avalanche and Blues. His cumulative ratios after those matches include a .902 save percentage and 2.40 GAA. Fantasy owners should expect this type of inconsistency to continue in the regular season as the Finn accepts a lesser role behind prized offseason acquisition Ben Bishop.
