Last night in the NHL we saw some pretty surreal scenes, including Alex Ovechkin having a penalty called against him (Max Pacioretty):


Also during this Washington-Las Vegas duel, we had another event that is really out of the ordinary.

Golden Knights goalie Robin Lehner was chased out of the game by head coach Peter DeBoer when the game was 1-1.


You read that right, after allowing 1 goal on 13 shots, Lehner was ejected from the game. The team confirmed after the game that he is not injured, it was a decision that came from the coach.

As a result, the crowd gave a warm applause to young Logan Thompson, who replaced Lehner and it was a very humiliating moment for Vegas' number one goalie.

See DeBoer's explanation:

Pete DeBoer said he gave Robin Lehner the start tonight "because we pay him to play important games like these." He said the decision to go with Logan Thompson after the first period was because he felt the team was rattled after the first goal Lehner allowed." - Jesse Granger, reporter covering the Golden Knights

A big controversy ensued and some even wondered if Lehner played his last game in Las Vegas, which is no small feat.
