The hot Finnish professional ice hockey goaltender Kari Lehtonen shines brightly as Stars hold off Blues to force up Game 7.
We must say Monday night (May 9) was lucky for Lehtonen. He was successful to make 35 saves to bring the series home to Dallas for Game 7 with a victory of a 3-2 victory over St. Louis.
In the regards, Stars coach Lindy Ruff said. "We can just flip the script and say how well Elliott played, and just change the name to Lehtonen now,"
Also, Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said, "We've won twice in their building already,". "I don't think it matters where you play a Game 7. I know one thing: We're going to come after them, big-time."

Actually in the second period, Steen's goal on a rebound of Robert Bortuzzo's shot gave the Blues life. The Blues already had the advantage in the time which somewhat included another excellent opportunity for Steen on a one-timer off Lehtonen's pads in the final minute. Bamn!
