Kari Lehtonen makes 47 saves as Dallas Stars hold on for 4-3 victory over Chicago Blackhawks

CHICAGO - Kari Lehtonen had a season-high 47 saves, Antoine Roussel converted a penalty shot in the third period and the Dallas Stars snapped the Chicago Blackhawks' six-game winning streak with a 4-3 victory on Tuesday night.

Valeri Nichushkin had a goal and an assist for the Stars, who had dropped four of five, including consecutive shootout losses at home in their previous two games. Alex Chiasson and Erik Cole also scored.

Patrick Sharp scored his 200th goal with Chicago in the Blackhawks' first home game since a 5-1 victory over San Jose on Nov. 17. The defending Stanley Cup champions hit the road while the circus took over the United Center and responded with an impressive 6-1-0 trip, including an 11-round shootout win in Dallas on Friday night.
