NEW YORK (AP) After a game in which Dallas got balanced scoring to cruise to its second straight win, Stars coach Ken Hitchcock gave all the credit to goalie Kari Lehtonen.

Lehtonen stopped 32 shots to earn his 300th career victory, becoming the 33rd goalie in NHL history to accomplish the feat, and Dallas beat the New York Islanders 5-2 Wednesday night.

"It's a huge moment for him but he was good tonight," Hitchcock said. "This is one you have to look and say your goalie was your best player because to win in this building and against that team, your goalie is going to have to be your best player. ... They're a top-scoring team in the league. He had to earn it tonight and I thought he did a great job."
