Lehner makes 34 saves, Golden Knights shut out Capitals 1-0

WASHINGTON (AP) Robin Lehner took a puck to the mask on a shot from Alex Ovechkin that was so hard it caved in the cage.

He needed to switch to an old helmet, but that did nothing to slow him down.

Lehner stopped all 34 shots he faced for his and the Vegas Golden Knights' first shutout of the season, a 1-0 victory over the Washington Capitals on Monday night to start a difficult Eastern Conference road trip on a positive note.
