"Dallas Stars coach Glen Gulutzan decided to go with Kari Lehtonen for Saturday afternoon's game against Colorado.
There had been some thought to going with backup Richard Bachman because of the tough travel leading up to this game. The Stars won in overtime at Los Angeles on Thursday night, and their charter flight home landed at about 5 a.m. The consensus in all sports is that the day after a red-eye flight is the hardest to handle."
