DALLAS -- Kari Lehtonen's 19th straight start in goal for the Dallas Stars ended prematurely when he left the ice in the first period against the Los Angeles Kings and will be evaluated on Wednesday.

"He has a lower body injury and it's mild," said Stars coach Glen Gulutzan. "We will reassess him tomorrow."

A Stars official said it was a groin injury and it's likely Lehtonen will be day-to-day.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
