It's official. One year after he pitched a shutout against the Boston Bruins in Boston, Robin Lehner will have an opportunity to repeat himself. He's getting the start tonight against the B's at TD Garden. It will mark his first appearance of the season in the NHL. For those of you who don't recall, last season on February 28 Lehner stopped 32 Bruins shots to earn his first (and only) career shutout. This season in the AHL, Lehner has recorded three shutouts over the course of a sparkling campaign which includes an 18-10-2 record with a 2.12 GAA and .938 SV%.

In 13 career NHL games to-date, the 21 year old is 4-6-0 with a 2.81 GAA and .910 SV%.

Lehner speaks:

On if he'll having trouble getting focused with a big gap between games:

No, I've still played lots of games this year. I'm just excited to be back here and playing against a great team with a great team. It's always fun.

On if he thinks back to his first shutout in Boston:

No... It's game to game. I've lost against these guys too. They're very skilled and I have a lot of respect for them and we're just going to go out and do our best and try and get the two points.

On how he prepares after the layover:

Have a good morning skate and get back into it. I've been doing it for a few years now so it's in my body, it's in my mind, it's not that big of a deal.


On if he is surprised to start tonight:

When I'm up here I have a huge amount of respect for the other two goalies who play. They've been having very good seasons and I've been having good success too down in the AHL. I'm excited to get the start today.
