NHL: Dallas 1, Anaheim 0

Jan. 25, 2012 at 12:04 AM

DALLAS, Jan. 25 (UPI) -- Kari Lehtonen shook Dallas out of a five-game losing streak Tuesday, logging a 27-save shutout in the Stars' 1-0 decision over Anaheim.

The whitewash was Lehtonen's first of the season and allowed Dallas to avoid its longest losing skid of the season heading into the NHL All-Star Game break.

Alex Goligoski -- who signed a four-year contract extension worth $18.4 million with Dallas Monday -- scored the only goal of the game.

Jonas Hiller wasn't tested often, yielding the single tally on 16 shots in the Ducks' loss.

Anaheim had a season-best five-game winning streak snapped.
