  • Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Starting Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Lehtonen will be in goal for Saturday's matchup with the Sabres, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports. Lehtonen has seen time between the pipes just once in the last month, but that was a 30-save win over the Bruins on Monday. It appears that nice outing has bought him another opportunity between the pipes Saturday, when he will square off against a Sabres club averaging 2.50 goals per game in January.

  • Lehtonen stopped 30 of 32 shots in Monday's 3-2 overtime win over the Bruins. Staked to a 2-0 lead early in the second period, Lehtonen let Boston back into the game before standing tall down the stretch and watching Tyler Seguin pot the winner in extra time. It's the 34-year-old's first win over a month, but regular starts will be hard to come by for Lehtonen as long as Ben Bishop is healthy and playing well.

  • Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Will start Monday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Lehtonen will man the crease for Monday's game in Boston, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports. It will be Lehtonen's first game action since giving up four goals in a loss to the Devils on Dec. 15. The game Monday will be the first night of a back-to-back, with Ben Bishop getting the start for Tuesday's contest. Lehtonen has been a decent No. 2 goalie this year, but a matchup against the red-hot Bruins doesn't look too promising.

  • Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Disappoints in 5-2 loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Lehtonen saved just 21 of 25 shots during Friday's 5-2 loss to New Jersey. The veteran Finn entered with a .930 save percentage and 1.94 GAA through his previous five outings, and with Taylor Hall (knee) out of action, this was a ripe spot for another solid showing. Unfortunately for those that showed confidence in Lehtonen, he posted a stinker. Ben Bishop is starting against the Flyers on Saturday, and he should return to more of a workhorse role over the coming weeks.

  • Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Starting third game in a row
    By RotoWire Staff

    Lehtonen will be in the cage for Friday's contest against New Jersey, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports. After three lackluster seasons that saw Lehtonen fail to keep his goals-against average below 2.75 and post a collective save percentage of .904, the Finnish netminder has enjoyed a revitalization under new bench boss Ken Hitchcock. In 2017-18, Lehtonen owns a 2.44 GAA and .913 save percentage, and his improved play has increasingly won the trust of Hitchcock, who's now selected Lehtonen to start in three straight games. In his past two starts, the former Thrasher recorded a 1.44 GAA and .949 save percentage while picking up a win in both outings.
