    Lehner gave up three goals on 29 shots in Saturday's loss to the Kings.

    Impact

    Lehner is stuck without a win through four starts this season, but it has to do more with the team's overall performance than his individual play. The 26-year-old was great for Buffalo in 2016-17 and should start to pick up victories once the team gets going. His .917 career save percentage is proof enough that Lehner can be a valuable fantasy asset, so exhibit some patience, as Buffalo's starting netminder should have plenty to offer this season.

    Lehner will work between the pipes in Saturday's road game against the Kings, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

    Impact

    Lehner has struggled this season, compiling an 0-2-1 record while registering a 3.17 GAA and .901 save percentage over four appearances. The Swedish netminder will look to get on track Saturday in a tough road matchup with a Kings team that's averaging 3.0 goals per game.

    Lehner stopped 23 of 26 shots in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks.

    Impact

    Lehner has lost all three of his starts while posting a 3.59 GAA and is clearly getting frustrated. "This is awful, it's not fun," Lehner said Thursday. "I had a guy in front of me the whole game."

    Lehner stopped 23 of 26 shots in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks.

    Impact

    Lehner and Sharks netminder Martin Jones both made 23 saves, but a Timo Meier goal with 5:30 to play in the second period provided the narrow winning margin for the hosts. The Swedish goaltender is still looking for his first win after four appearances, but losing is far from a foreign concept for Lehner and the Sabres.

    Lehner will defend the cage during Thursday's contest in San Jose, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Impact

    After taking a shot to the face during Wednesday's practice that required Lehner to get stitched up, the Swedish netminder was able to shake it off like a true hockey player in order to start Thursday. Lehner has great size and all the talent in the world, which isn't always reflected in his stat line due to the Buffalo team that plays in front of him. While the Sabres have what appears to be an improved roster in 2017-18, new bench boss Phil Housley's system -- which calls for defenders to frequently jump into the offense and be a fourth forward -- could see Lehner continue to be exposed to high-quality chances throughout the campaign.
