OTTAWA - Like many of you, Robin Lehner might very well have a splitting headache Monday morning.
Only his would be from getting run over by a 6-foot-5, 265-lb. train by the name of Dustin Byfuglien.
Not only did the Senators goalie survive the third-period collision, but only moments after looking like the team’s latest casualty, Lehner made a miraculous save off Evander Kane in a 2-1 game that propelled Ottawa to a 4-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets.
Lehner said afterwards his head was fine, that it was more of a “neck thing” that had him laying flat on the ice until being checked over by the training staff and Daniel Alfredsson.
“I just told him to get up,” the captain said with a chuckle, when asked what he told Lehner while tapping him on the pads then skating away from the scene of the crime.
