Insight: It's unknown if Lehtonen will start Tuesday against the Penguins, but we know he'll at least be available as a backup after the Stars demoted Cristopher Nilstorp on Monday.

Description: Stars netminder Kari Lehtonen (concussion) skated before practice Thursday and is nearing a return, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Insight: "Kari is doing great," coach Lindy Ruff said. "He’ll see the doctors (Friday) to see if he can be cleared. If he’s cleared, he’ll keep progressing. He’s way ahead of where I thought he would be." Lehtonen suffered a concussion last Saturday when Minnesota's Erik Haula ran him over, causing his helmet to fly off and his head to hit the crossbar. Tim Thomas made his first start with the team Tuesday at St. Louis and will continue to handle the net until Lehtonen returns.

Insight: Minnesota's Erik Haula came in hard while trying to control the puck, lost control of his ability to stop when Dallas' Cody Eakin tripped out his right foot and barreled over Lehtonen. The goaltender's helmet flew off and his head hit the crossbar. The Stars just acquired Tim Thomas to serve as insurance for Lehtonen. Smart move.

Description: Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen only needed to make 18 save to shut out Minnesota 4-0 Tuesday night.

Cold1/6/2014 10:19:00 PM
Description: Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen has allowed 12 goals in his last two starts, including seven Monday against the Islanders.
Insight: The Stars tried to give Lehtonen the night off on Saturday, but Dan Ellis gave up three goals in the first period and Lehtonen ended up playing the final two. He has some favorable matchups coming up at New Jersey on Thursday and at the New York Rangers on Friday, but he can't be trusted right now.
