Lehtonen posts 4-0 shutout of Islanders

Lehtonen, who got his first shutout this season and eighth in
his career, lost his first four decisions before being placed on
injured reserve with a groin injury. He missed 16 games, dating to
October 18th, before being recalled from AHL Chicago earlier today.
Eric Boulton, Marian Hossa, and Vyacheslav Kozlov also scored
for Atlanta, which snapped a three-game losing streak.
Wade Dubielewicz made just his second start in net for the
Islanders and stopped 29 shots. Dubielewicz, subbing for Rick
DiPietro who had made 18 straight starts, gave up seven goals to
Toronto on October 11th in his only other starting assignment. Both
outings came after the Islanders played the rival New York Rangers.
