Robin Lehner was sharp on Saturday, stopping 32 shots in a 2-1 win over the Senators. Sam Reinhart notched the game-winner in the 3rd after Kyle Okposo tied it with his 5th. Read what each had to say after the win.

Robin Lehner
"I'm just trying to work on being patient and use my body. Trying to be calm in the net and not throw myself everywhere."

"Working on my shuffle, small pushes, getting my angles. That's what we've been working on and I feel like I'm not out of position a lot."

Sam Reinhart
"[Lehner's] obviously a big part of that win. Him and the penalty kill, especially in the 3rd period. They really gave us a chance to win."

"We knew going into the 3rd we had more to give. If we played like we did in any one of the periods against Toronto we felt confident in ourselves and felt like we could come out with a win."

Kyle Okposo
"We weren't very good in the 1st period. We were just kind of flat. I was too. Started to get going in the 2nd as a team, but [Lehner] was terrific. He made some huge saves. If he doesn't make some big saves we're probably down 4-0 going into the 3rd."

"[Lehner] obviously played terrific and also our penalty kill. Those were the two keys. I thought we did a really good job in the 3rd sticking with it. We took the game over I thought. Just came out with some energy and found our legs."
