Kari Lehtonen struggled in the Stars' 4-3 shootout victory over Florida on Thursday night, allowing three goals on 14 shots and getting the yank in the second period.

Jhonas Enroth took the reins and led Dallas to a shootout victory. Enroth has not looked very good in a Stars uniform so expect Lehtonen to keep his job, but he's been struggling with 19 goals allowed in his past four and a half games.

Jhonas Enroth came in for a struggling Kari Lehtonen on Thursday night and earned the shootout victory over Florida by making 10 saves in regulation and another three in overtime.

Enroth came in just past the halfway point in the second period after Lehtonen had allowed three goals on 14 shots. A change in scenery was thought to be a boost to Enroth's stat line, but he's just 1-4 since joining Dallas with an .877 save percentage and 3.21 goals against average.

Shawn Horcoff snapped a five-game pointless drought with a goal and an assist in Thursday night's 4-3 shootout win over Florida.

The veteran has 23 points in 61 games in what has been an up-and-down year for Horcoff. On one hand, he's already three points ahead of last year's points output, but the Stars are eight points and three teams back of the final Wild Card spot in the West.

Kari Lehtonen will get the start in Thursday's game against Florida.

Lehtonen is coming off a 35 save performance in a win over the Islanders. The 31-year-old has struggled with consistency this year. He has a 26-13-10 record with a 2.95 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage in 52 games this season. Lehtonen has just one win in his last four starts (1-1-2).

Tyler Seguin (knee) skated with his teammates on Thursday for the first time.

He appears to be ahead of schedule in his recovery. "Tyler is really closing in on 'day to day' for us," coach Lindy Ruff said. "So I would say probably within a week...or sooner. It depends on how he responds to some heavy workouts here today and tomorrow." Seguin is feeling better but he knows he still has work to do. Still, it's encouraging to see that he's moving in the right direction.

Trevor Daley will be out of action for two-to-four weeks, according to coach Lindy Ruff.

He was injured on a knee-on-knee hit by Islanders winger Matt Martin on Tuesday. Martin received a one-game suspension on the play.
Mar 5 - 1:20 PM

Trevor Daley is expected to miss "weeks" after he was hit knee-on-knee by Islanders forward Matt Martin.

He finished the game with just 43 seconds of ice time after he was injured on his second shift. Coach Lindy Ruff expects Martin to be suspended and he has a hearing scheduled for Wednesday. Daley is a big loss for the Stars. He averages 23:07 of ice time and he has collected personal highs with 16 goals and 33 points in 61 contests.
Mar 4 - 1:08 PM

Cody Eakin scored the overtime winning goal for Dallas in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the New York Islanders.

Eakins also recorded an assist in what was his second multi-point effort in his last three outings. With Erik Cole having been shipped to Detroit and Tyler Sequin sidelined with a knee injury, Eakins could see an expanded offensive role in the short-term.

Kari Lehtonen stopped 35 of 37 shots Tuesday en route to a 3-2 overtime win over the Islanders.

The victory snaps a three-game losing streak for Lehtonen and improves his record to 26-13-10. Despite the shiny win-loss record, Lehtonen possesses a 2.95 GAA and a .906 save percentage; figures which have been more detrimental to his fantasy owners than they have been helpful.
Mar 3 - 11:44 PM

Patrik Nemeth will make his long awaited return to the Dallar Stars lineup on Tuesday night, after a career-threatening arm laceration back in Oct. 2014.

Through 13 career NHL games, the 23 year old Nemeth has no points, eight penalty minutes, 15 blocks, and 21 hits. "Obviously it feels really good (to be back)," Nemeth said. "I didn't even think I was going to be able to play here. To be able to play five games down there (in the American Hockey League) was good, to start playing hockey again. It's just great to be up here."

Kari Lehtonen will get the start against the New York Islanders on Tuesday night.

Through 51 starts this season, Lehtonen has posted a 25-13-10 record with a paltry .905 save percentage and a 2.97 GAA. He's also coming off a nine-start February in which he posted a 4-2-3 record with 26 goals against. No matter how you slice it, 2014-15 has been a poor season for the veteran netminder.
Mar 3 - 7:52 PM

Patrik Nemeth has been summoned from the minors.

He skated in five games with Texas, where he picked up one assist and five shots on goal. It's unclear if he'll play Tuesday for the first time since Oct. 18 when he suffered an arm laceration, but it's possible.
Mar 2 - 5:53 PM

Jhonas Enroth allowed three goals on 22 shots in Sunday's 3-1 loss to Anaheim.

Enroth is now 0-4-0 since being acquired from Buffalo last month. The 26-year-old hasn't played as bad as his numbers would indicate. His record falls to 13-25-2 with a 3.30 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage. Only Coyotes' goaltender Mike Smith has lost more games this season.
Mar 1 - 11:08 PM

Patrick Eaves scored a goal in Dallas' 3-1 loss to Anaheim on Sunday night.

This was Eaves' first game back after missing seven games with a concussion. The 30-year-old tied the game at one with a power play goal in the second period but the Ducks eventually pulled away. Trevor Daley and John Klingberg picked up the assists on Eaves' goal. He now has seven goals and 14 points in 29 games this season.
Mar 1 - 11:01 PM

Mattias Janmark was traded from Detroit to the Dallas Stars as part of a package for Erik Cole.

Janmark was Detroit's third round pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. The 22-year-old has 13 goals and 36 points with Frolunda HC in the Swedish Hockey League this season.
