DALLAS (AP) -Dallas Stars right wing Jere Lehtinen was scratched from the lineup because of a leg injury in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals on Monday night.
Lehtinen started Saturday night's game against the Detroit Red Wings, but didn't finish. He played about 6 minutes in the first period and just 9 seconds in the second.
He has four goals and four assists in the playoffs and had 37 points in 48 regular-season games.
The Red Wings were without right wing Johan Franzen for the second consecutive game with concussion-like symptoms. Franzen has had recurring headaches since early in the previous series against Colorado.
