Bachman Comes up Big for Stars

Standard Spin: With Kari Lehtonen battling nagging groin issues that may keep him out another couple of weeks, the Stars needed their back-up to step up to the plate.  Well, Andrew Raycroft struggled in a handful of starts, and so the team has now turned to rookie Richard Bachman.  Bachman has produced back to back wins, allowing just one goal in two games, and he earned a 1-0 shutout over the Rangers on Tuesday.  Expect the Stars to ride his hot hand until it gets cold.  We don't expect Bachman to keep it up for long, but he seems like a better play than Raycroft for next week.
