  • Sabres' Robin Lehner: Lets in two in loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Lehner made 25 saves on 27 shots but suffered a 2-1 loss to the Flyers on Thursday. That's another loss for Lehner, who has only three wins in his last 14 games. The Swede has played better recently, as he had a .937 save percentage in his four games prior to this one. Alas, Buffalo has the league's worst offense, so Lehner is getting no support.

  • Lehner will patrol the crease for Thursday's clash with the Flyers, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports. Lehner has just three wins in his previous 13 outings, no doubt due to the 2.78 GAA he has recorded over that stretch. It certainly doesn't help that the Sabres are fielding the league's worst offense -- a paltry 2.16 goals per game -- along with the second lowest conversion rate on the power play (13.3 percent). With so little scoring support, Lehner would need to be nearly perfect -- which he hasn't been -- in order to earn a victory.

  • Lehner saved 24 of 26 shots during Tuesday's 3-2 win over Ottawa. While the final stat line doesn't jump off the page, the Senators fought back in the third period with two goals, and Lehner was able to hold off his former team for the win. The Swedish netminder hasn't lost in regulation through his past four games while stopping 149 of 159 shots for a .937 save percentage. His fantasy setup remains discouraging, but this current stretch highlights that Lehner is capable of providing serviceable numbers, and especially if owners are selective with his matchups.

  • Lehner will start between the posts for Tuesday night's home game against the Senators, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports. Despite pulling out just one win in his last three starts, Lehner has actually been solid recently, putting up a .940 save percentage while facing an astounding 133 shots on goal over that span. The Swede will look to keep up the good form and grab a W against a struggling Ottawa squad that has been shut out in three of its last four contests.

  • Lehner gave up three goals on 45 shots in Sunday's overtime loss to the Blues. This was the second straight overtime defeat for Lehner, who played very well in both outings. He may only have one win in his last five appearances, but Lehner is doing everything he can to try and turn things around for Buffalo. The 26-year-old owns a decent .910 save percentage, but it's his 6-12-4 record that poses a problem for fantasy goers. Lehner holds some fantasy value due to his heavy workload, but it might be best to shy away from him until the team improves its play.
