Kari Lehtonen stopped all 33 shots, including a penalty shot, for his fifth shutout this season and 32nd of his career, and the Dallas Stars defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 4-0 on Saturday night.

Patrick Eaves, Tyler Seguin, Shawn Horcoff and Jason Spezza scored for Dallas. Alex Goligoski set up two of the Stars' goals as they won their second straight game and seventh in their last nine.

The Blackhawks had been 6-0-1 in their previous seven games.

Lehtonen turned away Brandon Saad's backhander on a penalty shot 7:13 into the third period. The penalty shot was the first Lehtonen faced this season and came after Jordie Benn tripped Saad.
