    The last we saw of Leafs goalie Jean-Sebastian Giguere last night came when he was forced to leave the game in the third period with an apparent groin injury.

    Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen did some solid work last night in helping Dallas earn a 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks. He got things started in the first period, though, to help give the Ducks fits stopping Todd Marchant on a shorthanded breakaway. Lehtonen’s lunging glove save helped set the tone for the rest of…
