Sabres' Lindback Pulled In Loss

News: Anders Lindback was pulled from Saturday's game against the Avalanche after giving up two goals on 12 shots.
Analysis: This was the third straight poor outing from Anders Lindback, who has given up eight goals in his last three games. While Matt Hackett will get credit for the loss, Lindback sees his save percentage drop to .901 and his GAA rise to 3.25 GAA. The 26-year-old may see the majority of starts as the season wind downs, but the Sabres are at the bottom of the standings and Lindback has just one win in his last 10 games played.

Sabres' Lindback To Start Saturday

News: Anders Lindback has been confirmed as the starter in goal for Saturday's tilt with the Avalanche, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback has alternated starts with Matt Hackett over the last few games, but he still appears in line to handle the majority of the turns in goal the rest of the way for Sabres. That won't exactly amount to much, as the team has barely been able to remain competitive most nights. Over nine appearances (eight starts) with the Sabres, Lindback is 1-5-2 with a 2.67 GAA and .926 save percentage.

Anders Lindback, G, BUF Sabres' Lindback Expected To Start Saturday

Anders Lindback

Sabres' Lindback Expected To Start Saturday

News: Anders Lindback is expected to receive the start in goal Friday against the Avalanche.
Analysis: With Matt Hackett battling knee soreness over the last couple of days, it makes sense that coach Ted Nolan is leaning toward giving Anders Lindback the nod in goal. Lindback is currently sitting on an excellent .926 save percentage over his nine appearances, but he's fallen below the .900 threshold his last two times and has only managed to pick up one win thus far. The league-worst Sabres aren't going to get much better over the final handful of games, so don't expect Lindback's results to improve either.

Sabres' Lindback Loses To Former Team

News: Anders Lindback stopped 35 of 39 shots but it wasn't enough as the Sabres lost 4-3 to Dallas on Monday.
Analysis: Anders Lindback actually had the lead three different times in this one but wasn't able to hang on for what would have been just his fourth win of the season. The Swede has just one win in eight starts with Buffalo, a 44-save 2-1 masterpiece against the Bruins on March 17.

Anders Lindback

Sabres' Lindback Starts Monday

News: Anders Lindback will tend the nets Monday against Dallas.
Analysis: Anders Lindback has won just one win in his past eight appearances with the Sabres, but still sports a very good .930 save percentage. The Stars have won five of their past six, including recent wins over Pittsburgh and Chicago, so it looks like the Sabres may end up on the losing side again. It's not advisable to start Lindback. Even though he's playing well, the Stars offense is scary and the Sabres don't score enough to even give Lindback a decent chance to win.

Sabres' Lindback Allows Three Goals In Loss

News: Anders Lindback gave up three goals on 27 shots in Friday's loss to New Jersey.
Analysis: Not a great outing for Anders Lindback, who was beaten at even-strength on all three goals. The 26-year-old falls to 3-12-2 on the season with a .903 save percentage and 3.14 GAA. He has just one win in his last nine games, making him an unattractive fantasy option in most leagues. While he's looked decent since arriving in Buffalo and is starting lots of games, the 26-year-old lacks team support, so don't expect him to record many victories.

Sabres' Lindback Starting Friday

News: Anders Lindback will start Friday's game against the Devils, Paul Hamilton of WGR 550 reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback has been impressive since the trade to Buffalo, with a 2.41 GAA and .934 save percentage through seven games (six starts). He still only has a 1-3-2 record to show for it, as his strong work can't inspire the Sabres to competence on the offensive end. Lindback is an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season and is making a strong case for the No. 1 job next year, although he admitted that his current hot streak means little, and that it's unlikely to be sustainable. Still, the Devils, who are starting their backup Keith Kinkaid, provide a good opportunity to extend his streak.

Lindback Stops 44, Gets First Win With Sabres

News: Anders Lindback made 44 saves on 45 shots, then was perfect in the shootout to come away with a 2-1 win over Boston on Tuesday.
Analysis: Now that's how you put a bad team on your back. Despite Buffalo's struggles, Anders Lindback has looked like a new man since coming over from the Stars, as he's posted a save percentage of .909 or higher in all seven of his appearances (six starts) for the league's worst team. This was the best one yet, and it's got to inspire a little spark of hope for the future in Sabres fans.

Sabres Reverse Course, Go With Lindback Again

News: Anders Lindback will be in the net for Tuesday's game against the Bruins, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: The Sabres were expected to go with backup Matt Hackett for Tuesday's nod, but after much discussion, coach Ted Nolan said the team decided to stick with Anders Lindback for the second straight night while the goalie continues to play well. It's worth bearing in mind that "playing well" takes on a different definition for the Sabres, who don't exactly have a high standard for production given their league-worst 45 points. Lindback has posted a 2.70 GAA and .924 save percentage over his six appearances (five starts) since joining the Sabres, but an 0-3-2 record to show for it.

Anders Lindback, G, BUF Sabres' Lindback Solid In Loss

Anders Lindback

Sabres' Lindback Solid In Loss

News: Anders Lindback stopped 35 of 38 shots, but was on the losing end of Monday's 4-3 shootout contest against the Capitals.
Analysis: Anders Lindback has actually been playing well lately, recording at least 30 saves in three straight, but he's been the hard-luck loser in all three as his losing streak now reaches seven straight. At just 2-11-2 and with little offensive or defensive support around him, the 26-year-old remains a risky fantasy proposition regardless of his recent level of play.

Sabres' Lindback Starts Monday

News: Anders Lindback will start in net Monday against the Capitals, Bill Hoppe of Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback was very good in his last start against the Rangers, allowing just one goal on 32 shots. He's played much better since arriving from Dallas, sporting a .925 save percentage while attempting to show that he's capable of being an NHL starter with Chad Johnson (lower body) out with an injury, perhaps for the rest of the season. The Sabres lost to the Caps last Saturday with Lindback coming in relief, stopping 20 of 22 shots. They face a tough task Monday with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom playing very well, so it's advisable to sit Lindback if you can. He has yet to win a game in five appearances with Buffalo.

Sabres' Lindback: 31 Saves In Loss

News: Anders Lindback made 31 saves in Saturday's 2-0 loss to the Rangers. He allowed one goal.
Analysis: He didn't have much of a chance on the goal he allowed -- he was screened badly and the puck somehow made it through a maze of players. He deserved the game's third star, but he remains a sketchy fantasy play. This is Buffalo, after all.

Anders Lindback, G, BUF Sabres' Lindback To Draw Nod Saturday

Anders Lindback

Sabres' Lindback To Draw Nod Saturday

News: Anders Lindback will be between the pipes for Saturday's game against the Rangers, WGR 550 reports.
Analysis: It will mark the fifth straight appearance for Anders Lindback, who appeared in relief of Matt Hackett in last Saturday's loss to the Capitals. Lindback hasn't had much success in those outings with an 0-2-1 record, 3.16 GAA, and .914 save percentage, numbers that don't figure to notice much improvement with the Sabres embracing a full-on tank job. He'll be a heavy underdog Saturday.

Sabres' Lindback Stops 31 In Loss

News: Anders Lindback allowed three goals on 34 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Anders Lindback played well enough to pick up a point for his team, but saw his record fall to 2-10-1 on the season after losing in a shootout. The Sabres blew a 3-2 lead in the third period due to penalties, with Tyler Bozak scoring a power play goal for the equalizer before winning it in overtime. The loss can't be hung on Lindback, who's been serviceable since being traded to the Sabres, recording a save percentage of at least .909 in all four appearances, but is still only a viable fantasy option in the deepest of leagues.

Sabres' Lindback To Draw Start Wednesday

News: Anders Lindback will be in the net for Wednesday's game against the Maple Leafs, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback will earn the start by virtue of performing marginally less worse in Saturday's loss to the Capitals than Matt Hackett, who started the game. Coach Ted Nolan figures to give both goalies frequent looks as the season winds down, with neither representing an enticing play, even in a seemingly favorable matchup like Wednesday's. Between the Stars and Sabres this season, Lindback has posted a cumulative 3.63 GAA and .886 save percentage over 13 appearances, with both of his two wins coming with Dallas. There's little upside to be had here.

Lindback Appears In Relief For Sabres

News: Anders Lindback appeared in relief against the Capitals on Saturday night. He gave up two goals on 22 shots.
Analysis: Both he and Matt Hackett were pelted with pucks -- the Caps recorded 45 on the night. Avoid Anders Lindback even if he earns starter's playing time. The Sabres won't support him with any offence and he's far from able to steal games with his skill.

Sabres' Lindback Gives Up Three Goals In Loss

News: Anders Lindback surrendered three goals on 37 shots in Friday's loss to the Senators. It was his fourth straight loss.
Analysis: While Anders Lindback played well in the loss, it dropped his record to 2-10-0 on the season. He's looked alright in three starts with his new team, but considering it's the Sabres, don't expect many wins. To add to the misery, Lindback currently owns a lacking .884 save percentage and 3.59 GAA. A fresh start is always nice, but there are better options out there.

Sabres' Lindback Gets The Nod Friday

News: Anders Lindback will start Friday's game against the Senators, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Fellow goaltender Chad Johnson was expected to start Friday, but he will not suit up after suffering a lower-body injury during the Sabres' morning skate, and Anders Lindback will get the nod instead. He will square off against an Ottawa team that enters Friday's game having gone 6-0-1 over its last seven games.

Sabres' Lindback In Line To Start Friday

News: Anders Lindback is slated to start Friday's game against the Senators, Paul Hamilton of WGR550.com reports.
Analysis: Chad Johnson was originally scheduled to be in the crease for the Sabres, but he's now being listed as doubtful to play after suffering a lower-body injury during the team's morning skate. As a result, Anders Lindback will take a second consecutive turn, and could be in line to start both ends of the Sabres' weekend back-to-back should Johnson's injury prevent him from being available Saturday. No matter which goalie is in the net for the Sabres on a particular night -- Lindback, Johnson, or AHL call-up Andrey Makarov -- it will be difficult to extract any sort of fantasy value, as wins have been exceedingly scarce for the league's worst team.

Lindback, Sabres Lose In Tampa

News: Anders Lindback stopped 32 of 35 shots, but the Sabres didn't muster any goals on opposing netminder Andrei Vasilevskiy in Tuesday's road loss to his old Tampa Bay mates.
Analysis: The silver lining is that Anders Lindback did play well overall in his Sabres debut. Unfortunately, that lining is just barely visible on the fringes of the dark cloud of misery enveloping the goaltending job in Buffalo. The Sabres are, in a word, awful; considering that Lindback couldn't put up passable stats for much better teams (the Stars this year and the Bolts the prior two years), it's hard to believe he'll carve out much fantasy relevance in his newest home.

Sabres Turn To Lindback On Tuesday

News: Anders Lindback is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Lightning, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: In the wake of Monday's trade that sent Michal Neuvirth to the Islanders, Anders Lindback is now in line to work in tandem with newcomer Chad Johnson, though with a rebuilding Sabres squad in front of them, neither of the goalies represent reliable fantasy options at this time.

Sabres' Lindabck Likely To Start Friday

News: Anders Lindback will likely start Friday's game against the Rangers, The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: There hasn't been any confirmation one way or the other, but it would make sense for Anders Lindback to get his first start in a Sabres uniform, after Michal Neuvirth handled Thursday's game against Philadelphia. Neuvirth is still expected to handle most of the workload down the stretch.

Sabres Debut To Wait For Lindback

News: Updating a previous report, Anders Lindback will not start Friday against the Rangers, as the Sabres will stick with Michal Neuvirth in the net.
Analysis: With Neuvirth playing well since assuming No.1 goalie duties for the Sabres, he'll stick in the net for a fourth straight start. Anders Lindback will likely have to wait until Neuvirth's performance takes a turn for the worse before he makes his Sabres debut.

Lindback Traded To Sabres

News: The Sabres have acquired Anders Lindback and a conditional third-round draft pick in exchange for Jhonas Enroth, sportsnet.ca reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback (2-8-0, 3.71 GAA, .875 save percentage) started just seven games for the Stars while backing up Kari Lehtonen, so the trade to Buffalo could result in more frequent playing time for him. That said, the Sabres are mired in last place in the NHL, having allowed a league-high 191 goals in the process, so there's not much fantasy upside to be gained by the move. The No. 1 starter going forward in Buffalo will be Michal Neuvirth, who general manager Tim Murray said would like to see more of.

Stars' Lindback Squanders Opportunity To Win

News: Anders Lindback turned away only 21 of the 24 shots he faced to take the loss Saturday against the Sabres.
Analysis: As expected, the Stars controlled the pace of the game for much of the way and finished the night with a 40-24 shot advantage, but Anders Lindback was simply outdueled by Buffalo goalie Jhonas Enroth. A matchup against the league's worst team is about as favorable as it gets for a lightly used backup, and Lindback still couldn't come through for the Stars. Given that he now sports a 2-8-0 record and 3.71 GAA over his 10 appearances this season, Lindback can barely be trusted as even a streaming option in deeper leagues at this time.
