  • Sabres' Robin Lehner: Lets in three in defeat
    By RotoWire Staff

    Lehner made 26 saves on 29 shots in Monday's 3-2 loss to Columbus. The problem isn't just that Lehner was thrice beaten and put up an .897 save percentage, it's also the fact that he conceded the first three goals of the game and left his team scrambling in the third to try to salvage something. The combination of Lehner and a weak Buffalo defense hasn't produced quality results, and he's tough to trust.

  • Sabres' Robin Lehner: Tending twine Monday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Lehner will patrol the blue paint for Monday's clash with Columbus, Paul Hamilton of WGR 550 reports. Lehner's performances have been lackluster at best as he has registered a 3.37 GAA and 1-3-1 record in his previous five contests. The netminder had a brief run of solid outings in late October, but has otherwise struggled to keep pucks out of the back of the net. A banged-up blue line that is without Rasmus Ristolainen (upper body), Zach Bogosian (lower body), Taylor Fedun (lower body) and Matt Tennyson (foot) is certainly a factor in the team's 3.50 goals allowed per game, however, the ultimate blame lies with Lehner as the last line of defense.

  • Lehner saved 30 of 33 shots during Sunday's 3-1 loss to Detroit. The 26-year-old Swede entered with a discouraging 2-3-1 record, .892 save percentage and 3.52 GAA through his previous six outings, and this was another lackluster effort. Lehner is probably talented enough to provide better fantasy results, but the Sabres are a mess offensively (league-low 1.9 goals per 60 minutes at five-on-five) and own the fifth-worst Corsi For percentage (46.9) in the league. It's just not a favorable setup. He can't be started confidently outside of soft matchups.

  • Sabres' Robin Lehner: In goal Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Lehner will get the starting nod for Friday's road clash with the Red Wings. Lehner shut out Detroit the last time these two clubs squared off, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that coach Phil Housley is going back to him Friday. After a brief benching in mid-October, the Swedish netminder has posted a 4-3-1 record with a 3.07 GAA -- numbers that are less than stellar but not downright terrible.

  • Lehner will guard the goal for Tuesday evening's road contest against the Penguins, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports. Despite attaining just one win for his efforts, Lehner has actually looked decent over his last two starts, posting a .944 save percentage and only allowing three goals in total. The veteran goalie's problems usually lie in his team's ability to provide him offensive support, which may still be hard to come by Tuesday against a Pittsburgh team that is allowing 1.83 goals per game at home, the second best mark in the league.
