Kari Lehtonen (groin) didn't skate Wednesday, but he made some progress off the ice.
"We're working him out pretty hard and he hasn't had any problems with it, so the injury hasn't gotten worse," coach Glen Gulutzan said. "That's a good sign. He's gone hard with therapy and rehab, so he is certainly ahead of the injury that he had last year (which kept him out 12 games). It's not to the same extent." Lehtonen has been quietly good this season with a 7-2-1 record, a .934 save percentage and a 2.12 GAA.
