Robin Lehner denied a report that he’d agreed to a five-year extension to remain with the Vegas beyond this season. But he’s still the Golden Knights’ top goaltender and is likely to get the nod again in Game 4 of the Western Conference final on Saturday. The Dallas Stars lead the series 2-1 after winning Game 3 in overtime on the strength of 38 saves from goalie Anton Khudobin. While Lehner is Vegas coach Peter DeBoer’s choice in net, Khudobin is the Stars’ only established option with Ben Bishop injured. But coach Rick Bowness and his team are being rewarded for their belief in the 34-year-old.
