NHL: Dallas 3, Edmonton 1

March 3, 2012 at 12:30 AM   |   Comments

EDMONTON, Alberta, March 3 (UPI) -- Kari Lehtonen took a shutout into the game's final minute Friday and made 19 saves in carrying the Dallas Stars to a 3-1 victory over Edmonton.

The Stars, who suffered through a mid-season slump that appeared to have taken them out of the playoff race, have won five out of six games and earned a point in the one game they lost in that stretch.

Dallas moved into a tie with San Jose for seventh place in the Western Conference playoff race and trails Pacific Division-leading Phoenix by two points.

The Stars broke a scoreless tie with second-period goals from Radek Dvorak and Tomas Vincour.

It remained a 2-0 game until Michael Ryder scored into an empty net with 1:28 remaining in regulation.

Lehtonen lost his shutout bid with 30 seconds to play when he gave up a score to Sam Gagner.

Other than the three goals, Dallas put just 10 shots on net for the entire game against Nikolai Khabibulin.

Dallas opened a three-game road trip that will also take the Stars to Calgary and Vancouver.
