Kari Lehtonen G DAL 12 Days

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.

Lehtonen was yanked from Tuesday's game against Ottawa after allowing two goals on five shots in the first 10:30, and the Stars ended up coming back to earn a 5-4 win in support of backup goalie Anders Lindback.

Lindback played very well in Lehtonen's place, stopping 34 of 36 shots, which is frankly surprising, considering how rough the Stars' backup goalie has been this year. Lehtonen, meanwhile, has been a horror show of late, having posted save marks of .875 or worse in four consecutive starts. He turns in the occasional hope-generating gem, but has largely been a drag on fantasy rosters except in terms of wins.

Lehtonen is on track to start Tuesday's game against the Senators, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' website reports.

Lehtonen was the first goalie off the ice following the Stars' morning skate, which sets him up to start Tuesday night. He will square off against an Ottawa team that scored more than two goals in just three of its last nine games.

Lehtonen let his team down again Saturday, giving up four goals on 30 shots in a 4-3 loss to the Avalanche.

After rattling off four straight wins from Dec. 27 to Jan. 3 that helped get the Stars within a stone's throw of a playoff spot, Lehtonen has laid an egg in three straight losses since, posting save percentages of .868, .875 and .867. The guy possesses the raw talent to be a top-tier fantasy goalie but has driven owners crazy with his wild inconsistency this season, and simply can't be relied upon for regular production the way the Pekka Rinne's, Carey Price's and Henrik Lundqvist's of the world can, to name a few. In 35 appearances this year -- all of which have been starts -- Lehtonen is now 17-9-7 with a 2.91 GAA and a .906 save percentage, both of which are worse than his career marks of 2.68 and .914.

Lehtonen will be in goal for Saturday's matinee matchup with the Avalanche, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.

After posting save percentages above .930 for three games in a row, Lehtonen has since reverted the poor form he's showed through most of the season, submitting percentages of .868 and .875 over his last two outings. Lehtonen has been one of the more frustrating goalies to own for his hot-and-cold tendencies, and since it's been more of the latter lately, it might be a good idea to park him on your bench Saturday.
