Lehtonen Makes 31 Saves in Stars' Win Over Coyotes

Kari Lehtonen made 31 saves for his 30th shutout, Brett Ritchie scored in his first NHL game and the Dallas Stars beat the Arizona Coyotes 6-0 on Wednesday night.

Cody Eakin and Jamie Benn each had a goal and an assist, and Alex Goligoski assisted twice as the Stars had their biggest margin of victory this season.

The game was scoreless in the second period when Ritchie checked Arizona's Sam Gagner into the right-wing boards. Ritchie then skated to the front of the net, took a pass from Travis Moen and put the puck past Coyotes goalie Devan Dubnyk at 7:22.

Dallas' Colton Sceviour scored 1:03 later for a 2-0 lead.

Benn, Eakin, Ales Hemsky and Ryan Garbutt all scored third-period goals.

The Stars won their third straight, and seventh in eight games.

Arizona's three-game winning streak was snapped.
