DALLAS (AP) When Dallas goaltender Kari Lehtonen had to face Pittsburgh’s top three scorers in a shootout Friday night Drew Doughty Jersey , he relied on a memory going back all the way to the first period.Carl Hagelin had beaten Lehtonen on a breakaway for a two-goal lead. The Stars came back to take a brief lead. With help from their goalie and a game-winning shot by Tyler Seguin, they earned a 4-3 victory over the Penguins.”I tried to use the Hagelin goal kind of as a reminder,” Lehtonen said. ”I’m sure they were looking at that too, thinking of shooting and that’s a way to score, so I decided to stay a little bit more out and be patient rather than have a lot of flow backwards like I usually do.”The approach worked. Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby and Phil Kessel, with 71 goals between them this season, failed to score. Lehtonen saved Kessel’s shot on Pittsburgh’s last chance. Malkin shot wide left, and Crosby sent the puck off and over the crossbar.”I wasn’t that close to Crosby’s shot,” Lehtonen said. ”Luckily, he missed the net.”Lehtonen earned his fifth straight win http://www.officialkings.com/authentic-adidas-dustin-brown-jersey , and Dallas also stretched its win streak to five games.Shooting second, Seguin sent a shot off Matt Murray’s right side and into the net.Dallas remained fourth in the Central Division, but pulled within three points of co-leaders Nashville and Winnipeg.

John Klingberg and Dan Hamhuis scored early in the third period to give Dallas a 3-2 lead.It was the first win for the Stars when trailing after two periods, and the first loss for Pittsburgh when leading entering the third.”We’re usually a good third-period team,” Murray said. ”It’s unfortunate that a game like that has to go to a shootout, but we played really well.”Lehtonen finished with a season-high 34 saves.After the Stars missed the playoffs last season, they acquired goaltender Ben Bishop, who has played in more than two-thirds of their games.”I think they’re quite frankly one of the big stories of the team,” Stars coach Ken Hitchcock said. ”Your goalie is gonna have to be the best player on the road and he has to win games for you if you’re gonna be a playoff team.”Murray made 33 saves Jake Muzzin Jersey , including stops on breakaways by Jamie Benn and Alexander Radulov in overtime.Benn assisted on all three goals for Dallas.Sheahan scored at 9:07 of the first period. He beat Dallas’ Jason Spezza to a loose puck, skated down the left side and slid a backhand between Lehtonen’s legs.Dallas had a power play when Hagelin took the puck for a breakaway.
