"NEW YORK. He used to serve in the Robin Lehners shadow."
"In the night, when the Buffalo a little unexpectedly snapped the New York Islanders, won the Linus Ullmark match-in-match against their distinguished countryman."
"– Yes, it was extra fun to get the win that little duel, " says the 25-year-old ångermanlänningen to Sportbladet after the 3-1-victory."
"During the three seasons of Robin Lehner belonged to the Buffalo Sabres hovered Linus Ullmark between the NHL and AHL team in Rochester and they are both blue and yellow målisarna managed to develop a good relationship."
"– Yes, Robin was a good friend to me. He always took good care of me when I came up and gave tips and taught there a little tricks, " says Linus on the phone from upstate New York."
"He wanted very much to win when it is a few years older göteborg-based came back to the Keybank Center with his new team, the New York Islanders last night – and he did also. With 24 saves, he led the Sabres to a heavy and important 3-1 victory."
" Yes, I must say. It was extra fun to get the win that little duel against him, acknowledge Linus."
"Otherwise, has, of course, Lehner has been one of the season's big målvaktssensationer and leads the statistics in several key categories – and the friend Ullmark'm not surprised."
" No, I am not. Over the years here in Buffalo and saw that he is a very good goalkeeper, and now when he plays on a team with a really tight defensive will the kind of results, " he says."
"”the Pieces of the puzzle fall into place”"
"It is possible, however, extraordinarily good even for Mr. Ullmark right now. He has in recent weeks accounted for a lot of the really eminent action and actually looks to have stolen the förstaspaden by Carter Hutton."
"– Even for our team have the pieces of the puzzle started to fall in place now, we also play tight and don't let much chances. Then I think it's my job to stop the opponents still creates, he continues."
"– If I then förstemålis now...I don't know. It can turn fast. There is currently good for me and I get a lot of confidence, but if we lose any match and Hutton then come in and do well, it may be his turn for a while. In this case, I would not be the least bitter. It doesn't matter so much, what is important is that the team wins."
"And so do the Sabres. After the night's triumph has de facto only two points up to Pittsburgh on the last wild card spot in the eastern table, and are thus in the highest degree in the race."
" We have known since the fine start of the season that we are a team with a chance at the playoff and now we begin to enter again. It's fun, " says Linus."
"Johan Larsson swept in the last goal of the night, two and a half minutes before the final whistle."
