Silver Nuggets: Robin Lehner starts in Boston

Thanks for nothing, Ben Bishop

One the one-year anniversary of his 1-0 shutout against Boston, Robin Lehner will get the chance to repeat the feat, as he is Ottawa's starter for this game.

Lehner gets the start over Ben Bishop, who is coming off a masterful performance--a 44-save outright robbery of two points against the Montreal Canadiens. Bishop's 44 saves tied an Ottawa team record, but weren't enough to keep Lehner out of the net.

Bishop probably said something about Lehner being a great teammate and competition is great and everything is great while nervously looking around to see if Lehner was within earshot.
