Lehner on starting vs. Boston again



Coach MacLean announced earlier today that Robin Lehner will make his fifth career start against the Bruins tonight when they face off at 7 p.m., in Boston.

Lehner has been a rock for the Sens in the back end against the Bruins since he began his NHL career. In those five career starts he has a 1.95 GAA and .943 SV%. Needless to say his 1-2-2 record is a bit misleading given that he hasn't allowed much behind him.

When asked about his sparkling record against Boston, Robin credits the play of the team as a whole for his success:

"I think we play very good against this team. We battle very hard and it's always close games. We want to win, it's a little bit of a rivalry, they're a good team and you have to respect them, but today I think we just have to put it all out there. Make it hard for their goalies and force their D."

He'll be opposed by Anton Khudobin in goal for Boston tonight. The Russian netminder has had quite a bit of success against the Sens in his own right, though over a smaller sample size. He is 2-0-0 with a 1.00 GAA and .973 SV%.
