Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen leaves game after Wild player runs into him

DALLAS - The Dallas Stars' Kari Lehtonen left Saturday night's game at 6:37 of the third period after the Minnesota Wild's Erik Haula ran into the goalie.

In Lehtonen's place, Tim Thomas made his Stars debut. They acquired him from the Florida Panthers in a trade at Wednesday's deadline. Minnesota was leading 3-2.

Haula received 15 minutes in penalties, a major for charging plus a game misconduct.

There was no immediate announcement about the extent of any injury to Lehtonen.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
