Kari Lehtonen stopped 37 of 40 shots in Tuesday's 4-3 OT win over the Minnesota Wild.

Lehtonen has taken a back seat to Antti Niemi in the last few weeks, but he made some big saves against the Wild tonight. The 32-year-old has just three wins since Dec. 17. Lehtonen has a 14-5-0 record with a 2.83 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage this season. He needs to see more starts before he can be trusted in standard fantasy leagues.

Tyler Seguin picked up a pair of assists in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Minnesota Wild.

Seguin had the primary assist on Alex Goligoski's first period goal, and he also set up Patrick Eaves' second period goal. The 24-year-old has 28 goals and 58 points in 54 games this season. The Stars got the game-winning goal from defenseman John Klingberg at the 2:39 mark of OT.
Feb 9 - 11:34 PM

Colton Sceviour, Jyrki Jokipakka, and Jamie Oleksiak will each be scratched from Tuesday's match with Minnesota.

Unfortunately there isn't a lick of fantasy value between these three, but at least Sceviour continues to improve numerically. He's now up to 12 points in 47 games this season, putting him well on pace to top his 26 points in 71 games last season.
Feb 9 - 7:46 PM

Confirming an earlier note, Kari Lehtonen will indeed face the Wild on Tuesday.

Lehtonen has easily performed his best against the Central division this season, going 4-0-0 in six games with just 10 goals against. He's also turned away 24 of 28 combined shots faced by Minnesota over two games with a win.
Feb 9 - 7:19 PM

Travis Moen is projected to play against Minnesota on Tuesday.

He was a scratch for Saturday's contest against Chicago. Moen is slated to play with Vernon Fiddler and Radek Faksa with Colton Sceviour set for the press box.

Kari Lehtonen is probable to play against Minnesota on Tuesday night.

He left the ice first at the morning skate. Lehtonen hasn't started since Jan. 19 against Los Angeles when he faced 29 shots in a 3-2 loss.
Feb 9 - 1:11 PM

Patrick Eaves skated with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn at Monday's practice.

The trio was together for Saturday's match against Chicago and Eaves picked up an assist on a goal by Seguin. "Seguin, Benn and Eaves were in on 11 chances [Saturday against Chicago]," coach Lind Ruff said. "They could have three or four. They should have had three or four. We missed too many good opportunities." The line will probably stay intact for Tuesday's match at Minnesota.
Feb 8 - 5:14 PM

Jamie Benn was critical of his team's effort in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Benn picked up an assist on Dallas' only goal on Saturday night. "They came to play," Stars captain Jamie Benn said. "They were ready to go and embarrassed us in front of our fans and in our own building."
Feb 7 - 11:19 AM

Colton Sceviour (upper body) returned to action on Saturday February 6.

Sceviour missed Thursday's game due to the ailment. He had three shots on goal in 10:49 minutes of playing time in his return.
Feb 7 - 2:11 AM

Tyler Seguin netted the lone goal for the Stars in their 5-1 loss to the Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Seguin also had six shots on goal and a minus-two rating in 18:19. After looking like he’d easily get to 100 points through the first three months, Seguin’s dip to three points in 11 January games hurt him. He has 28 goals and 56 points, so it's not like he's been a disappointment by any means. Jamie Benn and Patrick Eaves got the helpers.
Feb 6 - 10:50 PM

Antti Niemi allowed three goals on 11 shots in the Stars’ 5-1 loss to the Blackhawks on Saturday night.

He then proceeded to hit the showers after the first period. Niemi was making his fifth consecutive start. He had three wins in that stretch, despite posting a save percentage over .900 once. Kari Lehtonen made 13 of 15 saves in relief. The Stars’ goaltending isn’t good enough. Niemi has a .910 SV%, while Lehtonen has a .908 mark.
Feb 6 - 10:49 PM

Jyrki Jokipakka, Jamie Oleksiak and Travis Moen will each be scratched from Saturday's match with Chicago.

Unfortunately there isn't much fantasy value to be found here. Moen has seen just 16 games this seaon, which is slightly more than Oleksiak's 12. Jokipakka meanwhile has 38 games to his credit, but just six points, 37 hits, and 44 blocks.

Antti Niemi will face Chicago on Saturday night.

Niemi has won four of his past five games, with just 12 goals against combined in that span. To wit, he's rocking a .931 even strength save percentage through 35 games this season, a stark contrast to his season's .910 saver.
Feb 6 - 7:16 PM

Radek Faksa has been called up by the Dallas Stars.

This move corresponds with Dallas placing Jason Spezza on the injured reserve list for an upper-body issue. Faksa has a goal and three points in 18 games with Dallas in 2015-16. The 22-year-old does have some offensive upside though, as demonstrated by his 26 points in 28 AHL contests.
Feb 5 - 6:02 PM

Jason Spezza (upper body) has been moved to the injured reserve list.

Spezza sustained the injury when he was smashed into the boards on Thursday. We don't know much about the severity of his injury yet, but placing him on the IR list means that he won't be available for at least a week. He has 18 goals and 40 points in 52 contests in 2015-16. Dallas has called up Radek Faksa as a result of this injury.
