Stars' Lehtonen shining on Eastern swing

(TSX / STATS) -- In recent years, the Dallas Stars' annual trips through the New York metropolitan area have been disappointments. Kari Lehtonen is making this holiday season's visit one to remember.

Fresh off a milestone win, Lehtonen looks to extend a personal run over the New Jersey Devils and lift Dallas to its sixth victory in seven road games on Friday night at Prudential Center.

Starting in 2014-15, the Stars have been outscored 47-33 while posting a 4-7-1 record when traveling to face the Devils, New York Islanders and New York Rangers.
