Another return for a 2nd day in a row.

He stayed with the Flames up until star goalie Mike Vernon joined the Flames and Lemelin would lose the starting role.

Joining the Boston Bruins would also be a success when he teamed with Andy Moog and won the William M. Jennings Trophy in the 1989–90 season. Not seeing much success after that he finally retired in 1992 but had pretty good career totaling 507 games. 13 years later he was called in to be the Goalie coached for the Philadelphia Flyers until 2009 when Jeff Reese took over.
