The scary moment came in the 3rd period when Haula came charging up the right side with Dallas forward Cody Eakin back-checking him. Haula got off a backhand shot before colliding with Lehtonen, knocking his mask off and causing him to bleed after knocking his head against the crossbar.
Haula received a five-minute major penalty for charging and a game misconduct, while Lehtonen was forced to leave the game. Tim Thomas stepped in to make his debut after being traded to the Stars on Wednesday.
