DALLAS (AP) _ Kari Lehtonen had 37 saves, with some tremendous stops, for his
first career postseason victory, and the Dallas Stars beat Anaheim 3-0 Monday
night in their first home playoff game in six years.

Dallas captain Jamie Benn skated out of the penalty box to score late in the
first period, and 19-year-old rookie Valeri Nichushkin added a goal for the
Stars in Game 3 of the best-of-seven series. The top-seeded Ducks won each of
the first two games at home, both one-goal results.

Game 4 is Wednesday night.

Lehtonen, who held up through five Anaheim power plays, had a kick save near
the end of one of those in the final minute of the first period. That came right
before Benn came out of the penalty box and skated toward the other end for the
winning goal.
