Kari Lehtonen G DAL 13 Hrs

Lehtonen is set to start Thursday's game against the Senators, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Lehtonen was the first goalie off the ice after Thursday's morning skate, which puts him on track to start Thursday night. He will look to get back in the win column after taking the loss his last two times out.

Lehtonen allowed three goals on 26 shots in Tuesday's loss to the Canadiens.

That's the fourth straight game in which Lehtonen's given up three or more goals, and the seventh in his last eight stats. (In the other one, he gave up two early goals and was pulled.) In short, he hasn't been very good lately, which fits right in with his general struggles this year in the ratios department.

Lehtonen was first off the ice at Tuesday's morning skate, indicating that he'll start against the Canadiens, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Lehtonen struggled in his final few games before the All-Star break, and he finished the first half with a .904 save percentage and 2.98 GAA. He still owns a respectable 19-10-7 record, with his statistics largely reflective of the distribution of his team's talent.

Lehtonen gave up three goals on 27 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Boston.

Though he'd won two straight coming in, Lehtonen's still given up 10 goals in his last three games, and in fact has finished with sub-.900 save marks while allowing three-plus goals in six of his last seven. He'll have a week to think about it now, as the Stars enter the All-Star break wallowing in fifth place in the Central Division.

Lehtonen led the Stars on the ice for pregame warmups and will indeed receive the start in goal Tuesday against the Bruins, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.

Lehtonen enters Tuesday's contests with a robust 19-9-7 record, but only a 2.98 GAA and .904 save percentage to show for it. The Bruins will counter with Tuukka Rask in their net.

Lehtonen was the first goalie off the ice at the Stars' morning skate, which puts him on track to start Tuesday's game against the Bruins, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Though Lehtonen has allowed seven goals in his last two starts, he has earned back-to-back wins in that span. Tuesday's turn would be Lehtonen's 39th start of the season, a marked topped only by New Jersey's Cory Schneider (41).

Lehtonen stopped 38 of 41 shots in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Blackhawks.

Lehtonen's now given up nine goals in his last three starts, but they've all been Stars wins. The 31-year-old's numbers of 2.98 GAA and .904 save percentage aren't particularly impressive, but he did improve to 19-9-7 with the win.

Lehtonen will start between the pipes against the Blackhawks on Sunday, Mike Heika of Dallas Morning News reports.

Lehtonen struggled in his last outing, allowing four goals on 32 shots but received the win and improved his record to 18-9-7 on the season. He will give it another go Sunday, looking to turn it around after three straight weak performances in net.

Lehtonen gave up four goals on 32 shots in Saturday's win over the Capitals.

While it wasn't his best outing, at least he got the win. Lehtonen had lost his past three games and had been pulled from his most recent outing against Ottawa. While he's given up a whopping 16 goals in his last four full appearances, Lehtonen still owns a solid 18-9-7 record on the season. While his rate stats are a mess, Lehtonen has played a whopping 37 games this season, so the workhorse is a safe bet if all you're searching for is wins and the odd shutout.

Lehtonen is in line to start Saturday's game against the Capitals after leaving the ice first during morning skate, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.

Lehtonen was given a breather during the Stars' last game Thursday against Winnipeg, with backup Anders Lindback picked up a rare start. It was probably a good time for Lehtonen to hit the reset button, as he's been utterly dreadful lately, stopping just 83 of 97 shots (.855 percent) over his last four starts. He probably shouldn't be trusted to come through with a respectable outing against a surging Capitals squad.
