Robin Lehner’s 2015-16 season got off to a rocky start when the Sabres goalie suffered an ankle sprain in Buffalo’s season opener.
Lehner finally makes his return to the ice Friday for the Sabres’ matchup with the Boston Bruins, whom he is very familiar with. Lehner has played in 11 career games against the Bruins and has 3-5-2 lifetime record against the B’s.
“I haven’t been able to use my foot,” Lehner said on “Bruins Face-Off Live” before Friday’s game. “I just got to let my body know when it’s working again. It feels pretty good right now. (It’s) a little sore, but it’s playable and I can move out there.”
