Robin Lehner Responds For Vegas

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

If you thought Peter DeBoer was panicking when he made the call to sit Marc-Andre Fleury and play his backup in Game 4, Robin Lehner would like to thank you for your support.

Because in the hours before Lehner’s first star performance on Sunday night in Montreal, Lehner didn’t just lounge around watching the final round of the U.S. Open.

Instead, he did what most professional athletes would list as the very last thing they would do in his situation: he combed through Twitter to see what the hockey world was saying about his impending start.

“Not many people know,” Lehner began after a thrilling, 2-1 overtime win, “that I come to the game four hours early. I sat for two hours and watched you guys talk s— on Twitter about me, to get me motivated.

“I don’t care what people think,” he added, though his actions abjectly dispute that declaration.

But he cared enough to read Twitter so which is it, Robin?
