Ottawa Senators 20 year old goaltender Robin Lehner Made his second straight start, and got his second straight win. This time doing it with a spectacular shut-out victory over the Boston Bruins who have seemed to have the Senators number over the past few seasons.

Lehner was backed up but good defensive play especially in the first two periods with fellow teammates blocking 10 shots, with most of the Bruins other shots being kept to the outside.
It was in the third period in which Young Lehner strived. The Bruins stormed the Ottawa net bumbarding Young Lehner with shots. Lehner stood strong, played well positionally and looked like a star veteran goaltender making 32 saves, 17 of them faced in the 3rd period.

In a game that turned out to be a goaltending battle between 20 year old Lehner and all star goalie Tim Thomas Lehner came out on top. Thomas did keep the Bruins in the game for the first 2 periods making unbelievable save after unbealivable save. Only Eric "the Great" Karlsson beat Thomas with a slapper from the point on the powerplay in the first. In the last 5 games Karlsson has opened up the scoring with the first goal in 4 of the games.
