Description: Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen is officially in the starting lineup Tuesday against Pittsburgh. SOURCE: Stars.nhl.com

Description: Stars netminder Kari Lehtonen (concussion) will be available for Tuesday's game, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Insight: It's unknown if Lehtonen will start Tuesday against the Penguins, but we know he'll at least be available as a backup after the Stars demoted Cristopher Nilstorp on Monday.

Description: Stars netminder Kari Lehtonen (concussion) skated before practice Thursday and is nearing a return, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Insight: "Kari is doing great," coach Lindy Ruff said. "He’ll see the doctors (Friday) to see if he can be cleared. If he’s cleared, he’ll keep progressing. He’s way ahead of where I thought he would be." Lehtonen suffered a concussion last Saturday when Minnesota's Erik Haula ran him over, causing his helmet to fly off and his head to hit the crossbar. Tim Thomas made his first start with the team Tuesday at St. Louis and will continue to handle the net until Lehtonen returns.

Description: Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen likely suffered a concussion Saturday night and is doubtful for Monday's game against Columbus.
Insight: Minnesota's Erik Haula came in hard while trying to control the puck, lost control of his ability to stop when Dallas' Cody Eakin tripped out his right foot and barreled over Lehtonen. The goaltender's helmet flew off and his head hit the crossbar. The Stars just acquired Tim Thomas to serve as insurance for Lehtonen. Smart move.
