Jagr, Whitney score 3rd-period goals in Stars' 2-0 victory over Kings

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Forty-somethings Jaromir Jagr and Ray Whitney scored 4:22 apart in the third period, lifting Dallas to a 2-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night for the Stars' fourth straight win at Staples Center.

The 41-year-old Jagr and 40-year-old Whitney scored in the same game for the second time this season. On Jan. 19 against Phoenix, they became the fourth pair of teammates age 40 or older to score in the same game since 1942-43.

Kari Lehtonen made 40 saves to earn his first shutout of the season. He has won four of his last five appearances against the Kings.

Quote of the Day

I was surprised. I knew I got it. It's tough. You never know how hard it is until it registers on the gun. I got pretty much all I could into and you just hope for the best.
