Robin Lehner isn't close to a new deal with the Ottawa Senators.

However, a contract is expected to get done between the two sides. It will probably be an interesting negotiation between Ottawa and their projected goaltender of the future. He's appeared in just 61 games over the past four seasons. Lehner will be a restricted free agent in July.

Robin Lehner wants to finish the season strong.

"It's important for me and important for the staff in the organization to see that I'm tough enough mentally to turn it around," he said. "It was a tough stretch there for a while, and I had to play, and I was kind of thrown into the fire and it didn't go my way and I came back. (I) think I have turned around my game a little bit and the team is helping out, too. I've got to keep building." He was excellent in Saturday's win over the Rangers, which could earn him another start on Tuesday against the New York Islanders.

Robin Lehner stood on his head for the Senators in their 3-2 win over the Rangers on Saturday night.

He has a 3.18 goals-against average and .911 save percentage this season. Ottawa is five points out of a playoff spot, with four teams to leap. Chances are pretty remote.
