The Senators cleared up their crowded crease by re-assigning goalie Robin Lehner to the AHL's Binghamton Senators Tuesday.

The Senators started Craig Anderson in goal in their first two games, had Lehner dressed as a backup and Ben Bishop as the non-dressed third goalie.

But with Lehner having a two-way contract and Bishop on a one-way deal, the young Swede always faced an uphill battle to stay with the big club.
