Lehtonen out tonight, Bachman called up

By Mark Stepneski

Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen will not play tonight against Chicago because of tightness in his lower body. Andrew Raycroft will start in his place.

This will be the fifth start of the season for Raycroft, who is 3-1-0 with a 1.65 goals-against average and .951 save percentage.

The Stars will call up Richard Bachman from the Texas Stars of the AHL to back up Raycroft.

Bachman has been impressive in the AHL this season, posting an 9-4-1 record, 2.01 goals-against average and .931 save percentage while shouldering most of the load with Brent Krahn out with an injury.
