The Vegas Golden Knights are burying Thatcher Demko in shots again, but they can’t score. On the rare occasion the Vancouver Canucks are get a scoring chance, Robin Lehner is coming up large too.
Lehner’s biggest save of the Game Seven, which I’m going to go ahead and call the best of the 2020 postseason so far, came in the second period on Brock Boeser. Lehner stretched out his glove and robbed Boeser on a two-on-one break.
This is crazy.
“In those situations, you just want to get the puck off quick,” Boeser said at intermission. “Props to him, he made a hell of a save.”
