Golden Knights Goaltending

The NHL's goalies didn't win the day on Wednesday, which featured four high-scoring games. But goalies are never short of headline-making moments, which we'll cover in today's Goalie News. Kuemper and Demko Duel The Arizona Coyotes and the Vancouver Canucks are fighting for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, and on Wednesday, they faced off for two critical points. Unfortunately, because of a recent injury to Jacob Markström, the Canucks came in shorthanded in goal. It would fall to Thatcher Demko to shoulder the burden from the squad from British Columbia, facing off against Darcy Kuemper, making just his second start since returning from a serious injury of his own. Thatcher Demko (THE CANADIAN PRESS/Darryl Dyck)Darcy Kuemper (Jess Starr/The Hockey Writers) Though the final score was 4-2, both goalies performed well.

Golden Knights Goaltending

Tuesday was a very busy night with 20 teams in action across the National Hockey League. The top two teams in the Pacific Division got a pair of big-time performances from their goaltenders. Plus, we got an injury update out of Carolina. Lehner Blanks Devils for First Shutout When the Vegas Golden Knights acquired Robin Lehner from the Chicago Blackhawks on Feb. 24, they weren’t getting a traditional backup for Marc-Andre Fleury. Rather, they were acquiring a goaltender to work in tandem with the future Hall of Famer. Lehner was spectacular on Tuesday night in a 3-0 shutout of the New Jersey Devils. Playing in his 300th NHL game, he stopped all 27 shots he faced to pick up his first shutout of the season. It was his first shutout since April 6, 2019, against the Washington Capitals when he was a member of the New York Islanders. Lehner picked up his first shutout in nearly a year.

Golden Knights Goaltending

As we head into the final and extra day of February, the playoff races across the National Hockey League are tightening up. There was a big debut in Vegas to extend a winning streak. We saw another shutout in the Wild organization, which is nothing new. Plus, we wish happy birthday to the only NHL goalie to be born on this date. Lehner Wins Vegas Debut Robin Lehner was the biggest goaltending name moved on trade deadline day when he was traded from the Chicago Blackhawks to the Vegas Golden Knights on Monday. He made his debut in Sin City on Saturday night, making 32 saves in a 4-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres. Lehner allowed a goal of the first shot he saw in a Golden Knights uniform.
