Robin Lehner just wants a "fair chance" to earn his starts in Ottawa's crease.
"If I play good, I want to play. And if he plays good, he's going to want to play," Lehner said referring to his goalie tandem with Craig Anderson. "That's what you want on a team. You want two goalies pushing each other. If there's limited chance for one guy to play, he's not going to do as good. That's a little bit of what we wanted from our side. I think and I hope that's what's going to happen." Lehner inked a three-year, $6.75 million contract this off-season and earlier this week, Anderson agreed to a three-year, $12.6 million extension. He said that Anderson's deal didn't change his focus and it didn't upset him either. Aug 28 - 2:30 PM

Robin Lehner does want to play more often in 2014-15, but he's fine with sharing time with Craig Anderson.

"Well everyone wants to play, the guy that says he doesn't will be lying to you," said Lehner. "I think if I can develop more and get better we have a strong tandem. I'm not in a place where I think I should play every game even if it goes really well, I think we have a strong tandem and we have a good team. I'll just be happy with competing every day and getting a chance to get a fair battle." Lehner posted a 12-15-6 record with a .913 save percentage and a 3.06 goals-against average last season. He signed a three-year extension with the Senators nearly a week ago.

Robin Lehner has agreed to a three-year, $6.675 million contract with the Ottawa Senators.

Lehner is coming off a bit of a rough season as he posted a 3.06 GAA and .913 save percentage. Nevertheless, the Senators have been betting on him to become the team's starting goaltender and that should happen sooner rather than later. He's got enough potential to make this contract look like a steal, but the Senators are taking a bit of a risk given his relative lack of NHL experience.

Robin Lehner isn't close to a new deal with the Ottawa Senators.

However, a contract is expected to get done between the two sides. It will probably be an interesting negotiation between Ottawa and their projected goaltender of the future. He's appeared in just 61 games over the past four seasons. Lehner will be a restricted free agent in July.

Ottawa goalie Robin Lehner made 26 saves through 65 minutes of regulation and overtime action to earn his 12th win of the season Sunday night.

The Sens defeated the Penguins 3-2 in a shootout in Pittsburgh in their regular-season finale, but the club was already out of the playoff picture. Lehner stopped Pittsburgh's Beau Bennett and Jussi Jokinen in the only two shots on him in the shootout. Lehner wound up with a season record of 12-15-6, a GAA of 3.06 and a save percentage of .913.

Robin Lehner was superb on Thursday night as he lifted the Senators to a 2-1 shootout win over New Jersey.

Lehner stymied the Devils by stopping 38 of 39 shots en route to victory and improving his record to 11-15-6. His GAA is still an unsightly 3.10, but his save percentage is a more respectable .913.

Robin Lehner will get the nod for Ottawa on Thursday night.

He has won his past two starts and he hasn't lost in regulation in his past four outings (3-0-1). Lehner could end up getting another start before the end of the regular season, as the Senators close out the year with back-to-back games this weekend.
Apr 10 - 11:14 AM

Robin Lehner wants to finish the season strong.

"It's important for me and important for the staff in the organization to see that I'm tough enough mentally to turn it around," he said. "It was a tough stretch there for a while, and I had to play, and I was kind of thrown into the fire and it didn't go my way and I came back. (I) think I have turned around my game a little bit and the team is helping out, too. I've got to keep building." He was excellent in Saturday's win over the Rangers, which could earn him another start on Tuesday against the New York Islanders.
Apr 7 - 11:09 AM

Robin Lehner stood on his head for the Senators in their 3-2 win over the Rangers on Saturday night.

Lehner made 41 saves to help the Sens earn at least a point in four straight games he's started. The 22-year-old had a real tough time the past few months, but he's gotten much more comfortable lately. He's posted plus.-.920 save percentages in five straight contests. He has a 3.18 goals-against average and .911 save percentage this season. Ottawa is five points out of a playoff spot, with four teams to leap. Chances are pretty remote.

Robin Lehner left Thursday's practice after a collision with defenseman Eric Gryba.

Lehner has handled the Senators' goaltending duties while Craig Anderson has been on the sidelines due to injury, but Anderson said he's ready to play Friday night against Chicago. It's unclear if Lehner will be able to dress Friday, but we'll leave him as active for now.

Robin Lehner was lights out Tuesday night, stopping 39 of 41 shots fired his way, but the goalie took the loss in a 3-2 shootout decision to the Panthers.

Robin Lehner will start against the Florida Panthers on Tuesday.

Mar 25 - 5:47 PM

Robin Lehner finally ended his dreadful losing streak Monday as the Senators defeated Tampa Bay in a shootout by a score of 4-3.

Prior to this game, Lehner had not added to the win column since a 5-4 win over the Blues on February 4th, a span of seven appearances, but he finally broke the string by turning away 35 of 38 shots for a W. His record improves as a result, but remains an ugly 8-15-5 while his GAA is now 3.28 and his save percentage is .906.
