Dallas, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Kari Lehtonen turned away 24 shots for his third shutout of the season as the Dallas Stars took a 3-0 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday.

Sergei Gonchar, Jamie Benn and Rich Peverley all scored for the Stars, who have won their past three.

Marc-Andre Fleury gave up all three goals on 28 shots for the Penguins, who had won four of five coming in.

The Stars got on the board at 15:02 of the first period while on the power play as Gonchar took a feed in the high slot from Ray Whitney and blasted it home.

It was a 2-0 game 3:13 into the second on the power play as Alex Goligoski sent a pass from the left point to the low right side where Benn had a wide- open net for his 19th of the year.

Dallas took a 3-0 advantage just past the midway mark of the second frame as Shawn Horcoff hit a flying Peverley with a pass and Peverley was able to wrist one past Fleury's glove for his seventh of the season.

Lehtonen stopped 12 shots in the third to polish off the shutout.

GAME NOTES:
Dallas hosts Colorado on Monday ... Pittsburgh hosts Buffalo on Monday ... Pittsburgh had won both meetings with Dallas during the 2011-12 season, and the two sides hadn't met last season ... Lehtonen has 25 shutouts in his career.
