Stars recall G Cristopher Nilstorp from AHL after latest lower-body injury to Kari Lehtonen

DALLAS - The Dallas Stars have recalled goaltender Cristopher Nilstorp from their American Hockey League affiliate a day after starter Kari Lehtonen left a game with a lower body injury.

The move Wednesday means Nilstorp will back up Richard Bachman, who didn't allow a goal after replacing Lehtonen in Tuesday's 5-1 win over Los Angeles.

Lehtonen, who missed five games earlier in the season with a groin injury, is listed as day to day.

The Stars, making a late surge to stay in the Western Conference playoff race, play at Nashville Friday.

Nilstorp is 18-11-6 with the Texas Stars and ranks 10th in the AHL with a 2.26 goals-against average. He has four shutouts and a .909 save percentage. He is 1-3-1 with Dallas this season.

Quote of the Day

It was pretty unbelievable...I think (my family in France) is pretty much in front of the TV right now. I don't think I have to wake them up.
