  • Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Coughs up hairball against Jets

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12:32 am ET) Lehtonen made 17 saves on 21 shots Saturday and was replaced with 8:01 remaining in the second period of a 5-3 loss to the Jets.

    Oh, as the pendulum swings. This is classic Lehtonen. Fresh off a shutout win over the Kings, Lehtonen coughs up a hairball against the Jets. He's had a great season, so we'll forgive him. But it's a perfect example of why he's better suited to be a backup rather than a starter.

    Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Slated to start against visiting Jets

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/24/18) Lehtonen is preparing to face the Jets at home Saturday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

    Lehtonen was first off the ice during the morning session, which is the clear sign that he'll be patrolling the crease against a Winnipeg team that boasts the league's third-best offense and power-play assembly. The Finn is being rewarded with a second consecutive start after blanking the Kings among 18 shots Thursday night in Los Angeles.

    Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Shuts out Kings

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/23/18) Lehtonen stopped all 18 shots Thursday against Los Angeles.

    It was the first shutout of the season for Lehtonen, who has been playing very well of late. The veteran netminder is sharing the crease with Ben Bishop and currently owns an 11-5-1 record with a .923 save percentage. Considering Lehtonen has suffered just one regulation loss in his last 10 appearances, the Finnish goaltender makes for a pretty safe fantasy start when called upon.

    Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Will see Kings on Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/21/18) Lehtonen will tend twine against host Los Angeles on Thursday, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.

    The Stars have back-to-back road games scheduled, with Ben Bishop drawing Wednesday's start in Anaheim. Lehtonen, who's made 20 appearances this season, carries a tidy 2.27 GAA and .920 save percentage into the next contest against a Kings team that has gone 6-4-0 in its past 10 games.

    Stars' Kari Lehtonen: Relatively clean relief showing

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/19/18) Lehtonen made another relief appearance Sunday, setting aside 22 of 23 shots in the 5-2 road loss to San Jose.

    It simply wasn't Ben Bishop's night, as the Sharks amazingly beat him four times on five shots in the first period. Lehtonen would stop the bleeding to prevent the game from spinning completely out of control for Dallas, but we wouldn't expect the Finn to suddenly unseat Bishop as the No. 1 starter after his heavy timeshare with Antti Niemi (now in Montreal) was anything but intimidating for opposing teams in prior seasons. Attempting to impress in a contract year, Lehtonen has fashioned a 2.27 GAA and .920 save percentage through 20 games, so at least there's that.
