Robin Lehner would expect to be in big trouble if he skated the length of the ice to fight another goalie, particularly one who wanted no part of him.

The Senators goalie would expect to be suspended – or charged.

Speaking Tuesday morning about Ray Emery’s attack on Washington Capitals netminder Braden Holtby Nov. 1, Lehner clearly was unimpressed with the incident.

With the Flyers getting walloped on the scoreboard, Emery made a rink-long dash to fight Holtby, who told him he didn't want to fight. Emery said later he was frustrated with how the game was going.
