Daley, Lehtonen Lead Stars Past Thrashers
DALLAS (AP) – Trevor Daley scored twice on the power play for his first two-goal game in the NHL, Kari Lehtonen stopped 29 shots in his first appearance against his former team, and the Dallas Stars beat the Atlanta Thrashers 6-1 on Saturday night.
Lehtonen, the No. 2 pick in the 2002 draft, played for the Thrashers from 2003 until he was traded to the Stars on Feb. 9, 2010.
James Neal also had a two-goal game for the Stars, who have won seven straight on the road but are only 2-3-2 in their last seven at home.
Adam Burish and Jeff Woywitka added goals for Dallas. Andrew Ladd scored for Atlanta, 0-3-1 in its last four.
