Sabres goaltender Robin Lehner leaves season opener with lower body injury

Buffalo, NY, United States (4E Sports) - The Buffalo Sabres did more than lose 3-1 in their season opener against the Ottawa Senators, but also lost goaltender Robin Lehner in the second period with a lower body injury.
After leaving the game, a return for Lehner was ruled out and he was replaced by Chad Johnson.
Lehner finished the game with 11 saves in 12 shots, allowing one 30 seconds into the game.
Following a save thwarting a Senators forward Mark Stone scoring attempt, Lehner sat down and seemed to have hurt his leg.
The 24-year-old skated by himself to leave the ice but was assisted to the bench.
