  • Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Earns 300th career win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Lehtonen stopped 34 of 36 shots in a 5-2 road win over the Islanders on Wednesday. It was his 300th career victory. Lehtonen has been brilliant in starting opportunities this month, posting no lower than a .923 save percentage in four games, though he posted a mere .882 save percentage when he came off the bench. The Finn would need to go on an incredible run to unseat Ben Bishop as the No. 1 goalie in Dallas, but he tends to surprise when he does get the nod.

  • Stars' Kari Lehtonen: In goal Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Lehtonen will get the starting nod against the Islanders on Wednesday. After a solid one-goal outing versus the Rangers on Tuesday, coach Ken Hitchcock will continue to roll out Lehtonen on the road against the New York teams. For his career, the netminder is 7-6-1 with a 3.67 GAA versus the Isles -- not exactly the best track record. Ben Bishop's recent struggles -- allowing seven goals in a pair of defeats -- likely factored into the decision to stick with Lehtonen.

  • Lehtonen saved 24 of 25 shots and two of three shootout attempts during Monday's 2-1 win over the Rangers. This was a solid road showing from Lehtonen, and he now sports a 4-4-1 record, .909 save percentage and 2.49 GAA for the campaign. Ben Bishop returned to action Sunday after a brief absence due to a back injury, so Lehtonen's starting opportunities are likely to return to being few and far between. However, it doesn't mean the veteran Finn should be ignored as a streaming candidate or option for daily contests when patrolling the blue paint against favorable opponents.

  • Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Set to start Monday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Lehtonen will get the starting nod for Monday's road showdown against the Rangers, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports. Lehtonen has been a middling No. 2 option for the Stars this season with a 2.71 GAA and .903 save percentage to go with a 3-4-1 record. The 6-foot-4 netminder picked up a victory over a tough Blues team in his last start, though, giving up just two goals on 26 shots.

  • Lehtonen saved 24 of 26 shots during Thursday's 3-2 loss to St. Louis. With Ben Bishop nursing a back injury, Lehtonen could be in line for a fleeting uptick in value. The veteran Finn owns a .914 save percentage and 2.34 GAA through three appearances since returning from a personal leave, and with the Stars' high-powered offense providing goal support, Lehtonen has the potential to reward. Still, Bishop could return in short order, so it's a situation to monitor.
