Old man Poulin?

The Ottawa Senators have recalled Robin Lehner from Binghamton in advance of
their game on Long Island tomorrow night.

Lehner was born on 7/24/1991, meaning that he is 15 months younger than Kevin
Poulin (4/12/1990).

Lehner has appeared in parts of 2 NHL games (34 mniutes) and has faced 10 shots
without allowing a goal.
Poulin is 1-0-1 in his three appearances (1.97, .944)

Lehner ironically holds an off-beat NHL record that Poulin held for a few days
last week. Of the 675 goalies that have dressed for NHL games, he has played
the most time in his career without allowing a goal. (When Poulin played 53
minutes of scoreless relief in Edmonton he went ahead of Lehner, but promptly
disqualified himself by allowing an early goal in Colorado.)

Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home
telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: forever1940.blogspot.com and follow me on
