Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen had no problems resting his feet late in a 7-3 laugher in Calgary. If by some miracle the Flames had made it closer, Jamie Benn would have just set up Tyler Seguin for another goal or two.

Benn was named the first star of the game for his six points, including five assists. With the injured Steven Stamkos now likely to miss the Olympics, Benn is the subject of some chatter as a potential replacement—even though Canada is ridiculously stacked at center.


And Lehtonen? Just putting his feet up.
