Dallas Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen left Tuesday’s game against the L.A. Kings in the first period due to an injury, and the club on Twitter has listed his return as “questionable.”

Back-up Richard Bachman came in to replace Lehtonen, who, according to NHL.com, was making his 19th consecutive start in goal for the Stars.

Lehtonen, 29, has a 14-11-2 record in 30 games, and .916 save percentage and 2.66 goals-against average.

The Stars defeated the Kings 5-1, thanks to a four-goal outburst in the third period.

Update: Stars head coach Glen Gulutzan gave a brief update on Lehtonen’s condition to the Dallas Morning News. “It’s mild, and we’ll reassess it tomorrow,” he said.
