NHL: Dallas 2, Los Angeles 0

March 22, 2013 at 1:31 AM   |   Comments

LOS ANGELES, March 22 (UPI) -- A spectacular 40-save performance by Kari Lehtonen Thursday carried Dallas to a 2-0 decision over Los Angeles.

Lehtonen has struggled in goal of late, having lost four of his previous five starts. He let a two-goal lead get away 24 hours earlier against Colorado in a 4-3 loss.

He bounced back, however, to record his first shutout of the season and the 22nd of his nine-year career.

Dallas could not provide any offensive help until the third period, but Jaromir Jagr gave the Stars the lead 6:34 into the final stanza with his 12th goal of the season.

Ray Whitney brought Dallas some insurance just over 4 minutes later.

Los Angeles had a three-game winning streak snapped. Jamie Quick gave up the two goals on 21 shots.
