Lehtonen stops 22 shots as Stars beat Oilers 3-0

Associated Press  |  Last updated November 14, 2013
Kari Lehtonen stopped 22 shots for his 23rd career shutout as the Dallas Stars beat the struggling Edmonton Oilers 3-0 on Wednesday night. Rich Peverley, Antoine Roussel and Tyler Seguin scored for the Stars, who have won four of their last five games. The Oilers have lost four straight and are 1-8-1 in their last 1o games. Edmonton was also blanked at home for the third consecutive game, setting a new franchise record, and has totaled just two goals in the last five on home ice. Peverley got the Stars on the scoreboard with 9:15 left in the second period when he knocked in a rebound of his own shot for his fourth goal of the season. Seguin and Roussel had empty-netters 38 seconds apart in the final minute to seal Dallas' win. The Stars controlled much of the early play, but the Oilers had the best chance to that point when Jordan Eberle got the puck in tight in front of the net, only to robbed by an impressive glove save by Lehtonen. Edmonton's Sam Gagner hit the crossbar two minutes later. The game remained scoreless through the first with the Stars getting 11 shots on Edmonton goalie Devan Dubnyk and the Oilers responding with nine. After the Oilers continued to squander power-play opportunities, including a lengthy 5-on-3 early in the second, Dallas took a 1-0 lead midway through the period. The Stars came close to taking a two-goal lead on a power play with 6 minutes left in the second, but Cody Eakin rang a shot off the post. Edmonton survived two 5-on-3 penalty kills before the midmark of the third period and even a penalty-shot attempt by Valeri Nichuskin with 3 minutes remaining. However, the Oilers couldn't get the tying goal they needed before Seguin dumped a shot from his knees into an empty net with 52 seconds to go to double the Stars' lead. Roussel added his empty-netter with 14 seconds left. NOTES: It was the first of three meetings between the two teams this season, with the Stars having claimed 11 of the previous 13 matchups. ... Dallas C and former Oilers captain Shawn Horcoff made his first appearance against his old team since an offseason trade that sent him from Edmonton to the Stars in return for D Philip Larsen. Horcoff played nearly 800 games for the Oilers in 12 seasons. ... Recently-signed free agent G Ilya Bryzgalov has yet to join the Oilers as he has been sent to the team's AHL affiliate in Oklahoma City for a conditioning stint. ... With young Oilers D Justin Schultz still suffering from a groin injury, Corey Potter was called up and made his season debut.
