Robin Lehner between the pipes for Buffalo's season-opener on Thursday
Buffalo Sabres goalie Robin Lehner will man the crease for Thursday's season-opening home game against the Montreal Canadiens.
As the Sabres' top goalie last year, Lehner made 28 starts, putting together a 23-26-8 record wit ha 2.68 goals against average and .920 save percentage. He is the team's top goalie again this year, and Chad Johnson is also expected to draw some starts.
numberFire's models project Lehner for 27.8 saves, 2.6 goals against and a 43.0% chance of scoring a win tonight. He is priced at only $7,300 on FanDuel, we project him for the third-lowest fantasy score among tonight's goaltenders.
