If the Ottawa Senators want to avoid the Pittsburgh Penguins in round one of the 2013 playoffs, they’ll need a strong performance from much-touted goalie Robin Lehner.
It makes sense to rest Anderson on back-to-back nights, but some probably wondered if the Senators would opt to play him anyway because Ottawa still has something to gain by winning today. Again, as the eighth seed, they’d face Pittsburgh; alternatively, if they win against Boston, they’ll jump to the seventh seed and face the struggling Montreal Canadiens.
Lehner’s been the victim of bad luck. His 4-3-4 record doesn’t tell the true story of his production; the young netminder has a sterling .936 save percentage and 2.22 GAA in 2013.
