To be expected, as both the Stars (48 points) and Blue Jackets (51 points) are chasing the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The odds are against Dallas with just two games left, but they'll presumably stick with Kari Lehtonen as long as they have a chance to qualify. (Updated 4/25/13).

His injury woes have all but disappeared since arriving in Dallas and he's expected to be ready to go for training camp after suffering a minor knee injury in the World Championships right after the NHL season. He'll be asked to shoulder the load once again. (Updated 8/14/12)
