As it was mentioned during last nights broadcast, it will be the young Swede, Robin Lehner, who will be between the pipes come tomorrow night. Lehner has really played well versus the Bruins despite not recording a win this year against the Eastern powerhouse, he has gotten the Senators a point in each start and a fighting chance to win both games. He has stepped up since being recalled from Binghamton and has kept up his strong play that he had going down in Bingo. Lehner is really forcing the hand of Bryan Murray in making a decision on which young goaltender he will be going with, in the near future. And obviously it looks like big Ben Bishop will be the odd man out.

As for Marc Methot, many fans were concerned when they seen him go down, as they should be. He easily has been the more consistent blueliner we’ve had all year. It was just reported that he may in fact play tomorrow night, which is fantastic news, considering he didn’t look too good after he fell to the ice. If Methot can’t go tomorrow night, it will be Mike Lundin who will suit up. Don’t expect anyone to be recalled from Binghamton.
