He was replaced by Chad Johnson who stopped 20 of 22 shots and took the loss. Lehner's record remains 2-3-1 with a 2.65 goals-against-average and a .926 save percentage. Prior to Tuesday night, Lehner had allowed just two goals in each of his last five contests.

Confirming an earlier report, Robin Lehner will indeed face Florida on Tuesday night.

Lehner has stopped 178 of 188 shots faced since returning from injury, and though he's record hasn't reflected his success, surely that's about to turn around.
Feb 9 - 6:07 PM

Robin Lehner, who will probably get the nod on Tuesday night, has been excellent in his last five outings.

He has turned aside 178 of the 188 shots he has faced for a .947 save percentage and a 2.00 goals-against average. Lehner wants to be Buffalo's number one goaltender and he is well on his way to securing that role.
Feb 9 - 9:38 AM

Robin Lehner set aside 36 shots in the Sabres’ 2-1 overtime loss to the Bruins on Saturday night.

Can’t fault him for the loss. Lerner has been excellent since returning, posting at least a .943 SV% in four consecutive games. He might be worth trying as a two-three goalie in fantasy leagues. Lehner has a 2.17 GAA and .939 SV%.
Feb 6 - 10:02 PM

Robin Lehner will face Boston on Saturday night.

Lehner has been quite good for the Sabres since coming back from injury. Through five games he's allowed just 11 goals on 180 combined shots. That's about as good as it gets, especially on a team like Buffalo.
Feb 6 - 6:08 PM

Buffalo goalie Robin Lehner played well for the Sabres in a 4-2 victory over the Canadiens in Montreal Wednesday night.

Lehner turned away 33 of the Canadiens' 35 shots. He has allowed only two goals in each of his past four starts. Lehner has a goals-against average of 2.22 and a save percentage of .938. Lehner is improving, as are the Sabres, but neither the goalie nor the team can be classified as anything more than average, at best, at this point, and so Lehner is not a wise fantasy selection just yet.

Robin Lehner will play between the pipes on Wednesday.

Lehner has allowed two goals in each of his last three starts. He has a 2.26 GAA and .936 save percentage in five contests in 2015-16.
Feb 3 - 3:14 PM

Robin Lehner picked up his first win of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Ottawa Senators.

How fitting that Lehner picks up his first win as a Sabre against the team that traded him away. The 24-year-old missed a good chunk of the season because of an ankle injury, but he's looked good since returning to the lineup. He has a 1-3-0 record with a 2.26 goals-against-average and a .936 save percentage this season.
Jan 26 - 10:44 PM

Robin Lehner will get to play his former Ottawa teammates on Tuesday night.

Lehner has seen just four game's worth of action so far this season, and he's managed to stop 113 of 121 combined shots in that time. He doesn't have a win yet, but they'll come if he keeps letting in only two pucks per go.
Jan 26 - 6:19 PM

Buffalo coach Dan Bylsma has been very happy with the play of Robin Lehner despite the fact the goaltender has yet to win a game this season.

Of course Lehner has only played in three games since returning from a serious ankle injury that he sustained in the campaign's first contest. Despite the fact he has not posted a win in any of those three contests does not seem to be a concern for Bylsma. Of Lehner's play in the Sabres' 3-0 loss to Detroit Friday night Bylsma had the following to say: "He was outstanding. Numerous opportunities and several big saves … He was pretty strong the whole night. The penalty kill, he was a big part of that as well." Lehner is the undisputed Buffalo starter but he should be spotted in your fantasy lineup based on matchups.
Jan 23 - 9:08 AM

Robin Lehner stopped 42 of 44 shots in Friday's 3-0 loss to the Buffalo Sabres.

This was Lehner's third start since returning from injury earlier this month. He's allowed a respectable seven goals in those three contests, but he's come up short in each of those games. The 24-year-old has a 2.34 goals-against-average and a .934 save percentage in '15-16.

Robin Lehner will start for the Buffalo Sabres Friday night.

This will be Lehner's third start since returning from a high ankle sprain that cost him roughly half the season. He also he was solid in his first two games since returning, he's still searching for his first victory with Buffalo.
Jan 22 - 12:25 PM

Robin Lehner made 33 of a possible 35 saves in a 2-1 loss to Colorado.

He certainly wishes he had the final goal of the game back which was a back breaker after playing so well for nearly the entire game. A shot from the point somehow fluttered and handcuffed him. Nevertheless, it was still a strong start for Lehner who has missed nearly the entire season with a lower body injury. He has yet to earn a win in three appearances and two starts.
