Lehner, Islanders have Penguins on the ropes


Robin Lehner turned aside 25 of 26 shots in a 4-1 win over Pittsburgh in Game 3.

Lehner has steady between the pipes all season and he has carried over that success into the playoffs. He has gone 3-0 against the Penguins in Round 1, while posting a 1.62 goals-against average and .951 save percentage. The Islanders will have a chance to sweep the Penguins on Tuesday night.

I feel no one has given the New York any of respect they deserve. This team has impressed all year, and yet, it is a huge surprise they could sweep Pittsburgh.
