The Stars will go with Kari Lehtonen between the pipes on Saturday against the Capitals.

Through 25 career games against Washington Lehtonen has posted a better record than one might expect. He's 17-6-2 with a .922 save percentage and a 2.58 GAA. Not bad at all.

The Dallas Stars have seen a decrease in production from their top players.

Last season, Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin and Jason Spezza combined to score 107 goals. This year, they're on pace to find the back of the net just 60 times. Spezza, in particular, has struggled pretty badly, as he has no goals in his last 11 contests. "We need to be better all over the ice," Spezza said. "We have lots of chances, and we need to score on our individual chances. When you have chances, you need to bury it."

Julius Honka has been called up by the Dallas Stars.

Patrik Nemeth suited up in Thursday's match against the New York Islanders.

It was the first time he played in consecutive games with Dallas since Nov. 21. He logged 11:23 of ice time Thursday night and posted three shots in a 3-0 loss. Nemeth has zero points in 18 NHL appearances this season.

Johnny Oduya is expected to be sidelined for two-to-four weeks with an ankle injury.

He was quietly moved to injured reserve on Thursday, according to CapFriendly. Oduya was hurt in Tuesday's game against the New York Rangers.

John Klingberg finished the game a minus-2 rating in a 3-0 loss to the New York Islanders.

Klingberg will be on the wrong end of highlight reels tonight after John Tavares made him look silly on his first goal of the game. Klingberg is on pace for 46 points this season, which would represent a drop of 12 points compared to last season. The Stars are struggling mightily so it is only normal to see one of their best players struggling as well. If the Stars hope to turn their season around, Klingberg will have to pick up his game.
Jan 19 - 10:28 PM

Kari Lehtonen stopped 33 of 35 shots in a 3-0 loss to the New York Islanders.

Lehtonen gave up two goals to Islanders' captain John Tavares. Tavares first undressed John Klingberg before beating Lehtonen, and then again beat Lehtonen on a shorthanded breakaway with just over three minutes remaining in the final period. It was a tough loss for Lehtonen to take after he delivered a solid overall performance but couldn't get any offensive support from his teammates. He is now winless in his last four starts, dropping his record to 9-13-4 on the year.

Brett Ritchie and Curtis McKenzie will be scratched against the Islanders on Thursday.

Ritchie has had a nice season with nine goals and 14 points along with 23 PIMs and 82 hits in 45 games thus far. McKenzie meanwhile has picked up eight points along with 42 PIMs and 53 hits over 28 games.
Jan 19 - 6:10 PM

Kari Lehtonen will probably start in Thursday's game.

Lehtonen was the first goalie off the ice following the morning skate and that's usually a good way of gauging who the starter will be. He has a 2.86 GAA and .900 save percentage in 29 contests this season.
Jan 19 - 1:19 PM

Johnny Oduya aggravated an ankle injury Tuesday against the New York Rangers.

The injury will keep him out against the Islanders on Thursday night. Oduya missed 10 games from Nov. 21-Dec. 10 with the same injury. Jordie Benn is slated to step into the lineup in Oduya's place. It is also projected that Stephen Johns and/or Patrik Nemeth could see additional minutes during Oduya's absence.

Johnny Oduya (undisclosed) won't play on Thursday.

Oduya sustained the injury during Tuesday's contest against the Rangers. He has a goal and seven points in 36 contests in 2016-17.

Patrick Eaves compiled three points in Tuesday's 7-6 victory versus the Rangers.

He had a goal and two assists in the high-scorning win. Eaves registered his ninth power-play goal of the season in the contest. He has 16 markers and 27 points in 45 games.
Jan 18 - 12:00 PM

Johnny Oduya exited Tuesday's game against the Rangers because of an undisclosed injury.

He saw just 8:41 of ice time in the match before leaving the Stars with five defenders. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Jan 18 - 11:41 AM

Adam Cracknell scored a goal in his return to the lineup on Tuesday night.

He was a healthy scratch for the previous three games. Cracknell was also credited with six hits during 11:10 of ice time.
