Not even for a moment did Robin Lehner think he was going to start Game 3 ahead of Craig Anderson.

"Craig has probably been the MVP of the team the whole year," Lehner, who played well in relief of Anderson in Game 2, said Sunday morning. "My job is to try and go in there as a backup and help the momentum switch, to try and play good .. that's my job right now.

"I believe even if I have the pleasure to play here for 10, 15 years like I want ... that would be my dream ... in 10 years they will be looking at some other guy to replace me every year, the paper here. That's just something I'm going to start learning.
