Kari Lehtonen continues to amaze his teammates and the opposition, stopping 38 shots Tuesday in a 3-2 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena. Lehtonen, who was named one of the top three players in the NHL last week, pushes his record to 5-0-0 while maintaining a 1.58 goals against average and a .953 save percentage. "If he was a baseball player, he'd probably be Nelson Cruz right now," said defenseman Sheldon Souray. "He's making all of the difference in all of the games right now." The Stars were outshot 40-18 and have been outshot in four of Lehtonen's five games. Yet, he has allowed them to keep their legs under them and not lose confidence in any game.
