When a shutout leaves an empty feeling

Talk about bitter-sweet. Robin Lehner delivered a 34-save shutout for the Binghamton Senators against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins Wednesday night. And he was credited with the loss.

Huh?

After the teams were held scoreless through regulation and overtime, the Penguins finally broke the deadlock in the eight round of a shootout for what goes in the books as a 1-0 win.

Accordingly, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton goaltender Jeff Zatkoff, who stopped 32 shots, gets both the win and a shutout. Lehner, on the other hand, gets a shutout and a loss.

Lehner now sports a 4-2-1 record, with a goals against average of 1.70 and .943 save percentage.

His teammates, however, remain in a goal scoring funk, with only 22 goals in 10 games. The B-Sens went 0-for-7 on the power play in Wednesday’s loss and the club now has a 4-5-1 record
