Early in the season, you could see that his game was coming. He made some really good stops and the last few games that hes played, hes just been battling for us and making big saves. He made so many huge saves and his athleticism is really good. Its allowing him to make some of those saves.Lehners best stop in that game came with 5:06 remaining in the first period.

I cant even imagine some of the emotions that hes feeling and what him and his family have to go through on a day-to-day basis.
