Lehtonen, who stopped 58 of 60 shots in back-to-back wins in Dallas — recording his first-ever postseason shutout in the process — couldn’t replicate that success at the Honda Center. He was OK through two periods, making 16 saves on 19 shots, but was hooked less than five minutes into the third after surrendering two goals on his first two shots faced.
Thomas, who hasn’t played in the postseason since backstopping Boston during the opening round of the ’12 playoffs, looked a little shaky upon entering the contest, gambling on a poke check and missing as Corey Perry scored to make it 6-2 Ducks.
