Lindback Signs With Coyotes

News: Anders Lindback signed a one-year, $875,000 contract with the Coyotes on Wednesday, ArizonaSports.com reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback, who has posted a career .905 save percentage and 2.83 goals against average in 111 NHL appearances to date, is now in line to back up Mike Smith next season. In his new team context, Lindback figures to be a hit-or-miss fanasy option when he is called upon by the Coyotes to start.

Sabres' Lindback: 36 Saves In Loss

News: Anders Lindback made 36 saves in a 2-0 loss to Pittsburgh on Saturday.
Analysis: He earned the game's third star for his efforts -- he really stood on his head at times. It's interesting that his numbers (GAA and save percentage) in sad-sack Buffalo (2.81, .923) are significantly better than what he delivered in supposedly-better Dallas this season (3.71, .875). We're not sure what it bodes for his future, as the Sabres will be bad for a few more years. But he does have some potential.

Sabres Go With Lindback In Finale

News: Anders Lindback will be between the pipes for Saturday's game against the Penguins.
Analysis: Matt Hackett was a candidate to draw a start for the season finale, but since he has only recently recovered from a bout with knee soreness, the Sabres decided it was for the best to stick with Anders Lindback a second straight night. The loss to the Blue Jackets on Friday guaranteed that the Sabres would finish with the league's worst record, so there's plenty of incentive for Lindback and his mates to turn in a competitive performance Saturday, especially if it means preventing the visiting Penguins from reaching the playoffs. That being said, the Sabres don't match up favorably with the Penguins in the talent department, which will most likely force Lindback to end the season on a losing note.

Sabres' Lindback Stops 36 Shots In Loss

News: Anders Lindback stopped 36 of 39 shots in Friday's loss to the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: An outstanding performance from Anders Lindback, who lost for just the second time in five games. With the Sabres closing out the regular season Saturday, Lindback makes for an interesting fantasy play, as Buffalo is taking on the Penguins, who need two points in order to make the playoffs. While he's had a rough season, Lindback is finishing strong, having stopped 85 of the last 91 shots he's faced. If you're feeling like taking a gamble, Lindback could be worth a start against the desperate Penguins.

Sabres' Lindback To Get Start Friday

News: Anders Lindback will be between the pipes for Friday's game against the Blue Jackets, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: For all the talk of the Sabres' tanking to secure the league's worst record, Anders Lindback has been doing his best to compromise those efforts. After a 49-save performance Monday to clip the Hurricanes, Lindback's record now stands at 4-6-2 to go along with an impeccable .923 save percentage over his 14 outings with the Sabres. The team's lack of offensive playmakers will still make Lindback the underdog Friday, but expect him to deliver another competitive showing. With the Sabres set to play again Saturday in their finale against the Penguins, Friday's outing could be the last of the season for Lindback.

Lindback's Career-High 49 Saves Lead Sabres To Win

News: Anders Lindback stopped a career-high 49 of 52 shot attempts to capture a 4-3 win over the Hurricanes on Monday.
Analysis: Anders Lindback was under siege early but held steady, stopping 23 shots just in the first period. Despite the drastic discrepancy in shots, the Sabres actually managed to build a 4-0 lead late in second period, before the Hurricanes finally broke Lindback over the game's last 22 minutes to make the final margin more respectable. Those looking purely for stabilization in save percentage could benefit from rostering Lindback, who upholds a .923 mark over his 14 games, but he's a risk in just about every other department from a fantasy perspective. By virtue of the sheer number of shots he faces, his GAA is prone to inflation, and wins don't come easily either as a member of the NHL's worst team.

Sabres' Lindback Starts Monday

News: Anders Lindback will start in net Monday against the Hurricanes, Paul Hamilton of WGR 550 AM reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback received a night off Saturday, but will return to the net Monday as the Sabres near the end of a woefully bad season. He allowed seven goals in his last two appearances, but will receive some relief Monday facing a Hurricanes squad that has a hard time finding the back of the net. Lindback started off hot with the Sabres after being traded from Dallas but has cooled off considerably. The Sabres can clinch last place with a loss, so expect some cheers for the Canes from some Sabres fans.

Sabres' Lindback Allows Four Goals In Loss

News: Anders Lindback gave up four goals on 36 shots in Friday's loss to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Anders Lindback has now given up seven goals in his last two appearances, dropping his save percentage to .903 on the season. While this loss was just his first defeat in three games, he still owns a lackluster 5-14-2 record and 3.17 GAA on the season. He's likely to start the final few games for the Sabres, but with the way Buffalo has struggled, don't expect much from the 26-year-old.

Sabres' Lindback Starting Friday

News: Anders Lindback will start Friday's game against the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Anders Lindback is looking for a third consecutive victory, after picking up his fourth and fifth wins of the season against the hapless Coyotes and Maple Leafs. Things probably won't come so easy against the Blackhawks, but Lindback does at least have home-ice advantage.

Sabres' Lindback Stops 24 In Win

News: Anders Lindback allowed three goals on 27 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Although Anders Lindback didn't play particularly well, he was able to pick up his second straight victory, and moved to 5-13-2 on the season. With Buffalo struggling as much as they have this year, it's probably best to stay away from Lindback for now in most fantasy leagues.

Sabres' Lindback In Crease Wednesday

News: Anders Lindback will be in goal for Wednesday's game against the Maple Leafs, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
Analysis: With Matt Hackett still nursing a knee injury, it's an easy call for coach Ted Nolan to go with Anders Lindback, who steered the Sabres to a 4-1 victory Monday night. While he hardly makes for an inspiring fantasy option given his woeful 4-13-2 record on the season, Lindback will have a decent shot at extending his winning streak to two games. The Leafs rank 23rd in the league in scoring and could be fatigued after playing their second game in as many nights.

28-Save Win For Sabres' Lindback

News: Anders Lindback made 28 of 29 saves in a 4-1 win over the Coyotes on Monday.
Analysis: Anders Lindback came away with just his fourth win in 21 appearances this season in a fine effort against the similarly terrible Coyotes. He's now 2-5-2 with a 2.62 GAA and .926 save percentage since coming to Buffalo from Dallas.

Sabres Turn To Lindback On Monday

News: Anders Lindback is slated to start Monday's game against the Coyotes, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: With Matt Hackett not spotted at the team's morning skate, look for Andrey Makarov to back Anders Lindback up on Monday. The Sabres currently sit in 30th/last place in the NHL standings with 48 points, while the Coyotes are 29th overall, with 54 points. It's in the Sabres' best long-term interests to lose so they have a better chance of landing Connor McDavid, but Lindback and the Sabres should still put up a fight, even though the Swedish goalie has allowed eight goals in his past three games. Lindback is only worth starting if poolies are scratching at the bottom of the barrel.

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.

Anders Lindback

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.

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.

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.

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.
