Robin Lehner is presumably ready to return after dealing with the flu.

That's based on the fact that the Sabres sent Linus Ullmark to the minors, leaving the team with two goaltenders including Lehner. It's possible that the Sabres will still recall Ullmark or another netminder prior to Monday's game, but it seems likely that Lehner is simply healthy enough to play now.

Robin Lehner (flu) was not expected to travel with the Sabres on the team's upcoming road trip.

Anders Nilsson and Linus Ullmark might be Buffalo's goalies for Thursday and Friday if Lehner isn't able to join the team.

Robin Lehner will sit Tuesday night because of the flu.

Anders Nilsson will get the nod against Philadelphia as a result. Lehner recorded his ninth win in 27 starts against the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Robin Lehner was saved by his offense in a 4-3 win over the Jets on Saturday.

The Sabres rallied from a 3-1 deficit in the third period. Lehner made 32 saves in the effort, including seven of eight while on the penalty kill. He also had a scuffle with Dustin Byfuglien after the final buzzer, collecting a roughing minor just for good measure. Lehner is now 10-12-5 on the season.
Jan 7 - 4:31 PM

Robin Lehner will face Winnipeg on Saturday afternoon.

Lehner may be 1-3-1 over his last five games, but he sports a .922 save percentage on a combined 180 shots. While have only a single game with less than three goals against in that span doesn't look good, it would seem Lehner is playing at a high level and just needs a bit of help from the five in front.
Jan 7 - 12:01 PM

Robin Lehner has been on the bench for Buffalo's last two games, partly to rest from some minor ailments.

"Same with a number of players. It's not something that would keep him out of the lineup," coach Dan Bylsma said. "He's had some bumps and bruises the last few games he's played. Both things go into the decision but Anders getting the win in New York and playing well, he's going to get the opportunity again." It doesn't hurt that Anders Nilsson has played pretty well too. Lehner could be back in the crease for Saturday's game against Winnipeg.
Jan 6 - 9:10 AM

Lehner hasn't struggled a ton this season, well, for a Sabres goalie that is, but he's been roughed up by the Bruins three times this season. He's 0-3 with nine goals against and a .920 save percentage. You may wish to find a more favorable matchup.
