Robin Lehner stopped 35 shots for his ninth career shutout in his Islanders debut, leading the team to a 4-0 victory on Monday over the visiting San Jose Sharks.
Anders Lee, Scott Mayfield, Matt Martin and Casey Cizikas scored to help the Islanders get their new coach, Barry Trotz, his first win at home. The Islanders, who opened the season with an overtime win at Carolina on Thursday, lost their home opener to Nashville two nights later.
Lehner, who signed with the Islanders in July, played for the first time since March 29, when he was with Buffalo. He left that game against cheap nhl jerseys china
Detroit because of a panic attack and was subsequently treated for alcohol and drug addiction. He was also found to have bipolar disorder, A.D.H.D. and PTSD.
“It was a really good game, a fun game to play,” Lehner said after Monday’s win. “I was a little bit nervous at the beginning, to be honest. Then we got a couple of easy ones right from the start to kind of get us settled down a little bit.”
