Description: Dallas' Cristopher Nilstorp will handle netminding duties Saturday against the Sharks.

Description: Dallas goaltender Cristopher Nilstorp will start Thursday's game with Kari Lehtonen still dealing with a groin injury.
Insight: Nilstorp started the season as Lehtonen's backup but also suffered a groin injury and was sent to the minors for Richard Bachman after he recovered. Bachman has allowed 13 goals over his last three games.

Description: Dallas goaltender Cristopher Nilstorp has been placed on injured reserve with a lower-body injury. The 25-year-old Richard Bachman has been recalled.
Insight: Nilstorp actually started Saturday's game in place of the injured Kari Lehtonen, but Lehtonen's injury doesn't appear to be too serious since he was able to come on in relief of Nilstorp.

Description: Dallas goaltender Cristopher Nilstorp left Saturday's game due to an injury.
Insight: Nilstorp was starting in place of Kari Lehtonen, who "tweaked" something and had to sit out. Lehtonen was forced into relief action late in the third period.

Description: Dallas goaltender Cristopher Nilstorp will start Saturday in place of Kari Lehtonen versus the Blues.
Insight: Dallas isn't in the midst of a back-to-back but Lehtonen is getting a rest anyway. That should tell fantasy owners how the Stars plan to utilize Lehtonen to keep him healthy and fresh this season. Nilstorp lost 1-0 against the Wild last week in his NHL debut.

Description: Dallas goaltender Christopher Nihlstorp will start Sunday in place of Kari Lehtonen.
Insight: Lehtonen faced 40 shots on goal in a win over Phoenix on Saturday and likely needs a rest. Nihlstorp has never played an NHL game.

Description: Dallas goaltender Christopher Nihlstorp will serve as Kari Lehtonen's backup for the time being after Richard Bachman was demoted to the minors on Friday.
Insight: Nihlstorp has never played an NHL game but had some success in the AHL during the lockout. Lehtonen has put together two straight 30-win seasons and had a .922 SV% and 2.33 GAA last season in 59 starts, but he has dealt with a multitude of injuries in the past.
