Lehner To Start For Senators Vs Oilers Saturday

Senators_Robin_Lehner_NHL [1]Goalie Robin Lehner will reportedly start for Ottawa tomorrow afternoon when the Senators host Edmonton.

The Oilers, of course, are believed to be scouring the league for a goalie — a direct response to Devan Dubnyk’s early-season struggles. And given the Sens already have Craig Anderson as their starter, well, perhaps there’s a match with Lehner and his career .927 save percentage in 27 NHL appearances?

But expect to hear the term “showcasing” to describe what the Sens may or may not be doing by giving the 22-year-old Lehner the nod versus Edmonton. (In reality, Anderson has started the last three games, so chances are it’s just Lehner’s turn. But what fun is reality?)
