Lindback Chased In Bolts' Game 2 Loss

News: Anders Lindback allowed three goals on 23 shots in Friday's Game 2 Atlantic Division semifinal loss to Montreal, leaving the game with 8:14 left in the period.
Analysis: Anders Lindback likely will be in goal for Sunday's Game 3 if Ben Bishop (arm) still is unavailable to play. Lindback played tremendously in the week leading up to the playoffs, but the Bolts have lost home ice and the towering Swede has allowed eight goals in two games. Tampa Bay faces a must-win in Game 3 and Lindback will have to be better.

Lightning's Lindback To Start Friday

News: Anders Lindback will be in goal for Friday's game against the Canadiens, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback will look to get back on track after surrendering five goals in an overtime loss to the Canadiens in Game 1 of the Lightning's first-round playoff series.

Bolts' Lindback Stops 39 In Loss

News: Anders Lindback allowed five goals on 44 shots in Wednesday's 5-4 OT loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: Anders Lindback wasn't great Wednesday, but it didn't help that his defense allowed 44 shots on goal. If starter Ben Bishop (elbow) can get healthy for Friday's Game 2, Lindback will reassume the backup role.

Bolts' Lindback: Strong Show Means New Contract?

News: A strong performance by Anders Lindback this postseason could pave the way for a contract extension for the soon-to-be free agent. He will be the Lightning's starter while Ben Bishop is on the shelf with an injury.
Analysis: Anders Lindback had a brutal start to the season, but has really worked to quiet his game in the last few months and it has paid off in spades. He earned the NHL's first star of the week for a 3-0-0, 0.67 GAA and .975 save percentage record. He has changed his game and now waits for skaters to make their move instead of challenging them. It seems to be keeping holes sealed up and shooters are struggling to find space around his big body. The Bolts will need him to stay tight or they could be facing an early golf date. And he, a new city to play in.

Bolts' Lindback Expected To Get Nod For Game 1

News: Anders Lindback is expected to receive the start Wednesday for Game 1 of the Lightning's first-round series with the Canadiens, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop (upper body) was absent once again from Tuesday's practice, suggesting the Lightning will prepare to proceed with Anders Lindback as their primary goalie to open the playoffs. Lindback has historically provided mediocre numbers in goal during his time at the NHL level, but he may have restored some confidence during his three-game run as starter over the final week of the regular season. He earned the NHL's First Star honors for the week by picking up wins in all three contests, surrendering just two goals during that time and clinching home ice in the first round for the Bolts in the process.

Anders Lindback, G, TB Bolts' Lindback: NHL First Star Last Week

Bolts' Lindback: NHL First Star Last Week

News: Linback was named the NHL's first star for the last week of the season. He had a 3-0-0 record with a 0.67 GAA, .975 save percentage and one shutout, pacing the Lightning to a four straight wins to end the season.
Analysis: Overall, his numbers aren't great (8-12-2, 2.90, .891), but he's clearly peaking just when the Bolts need him most. Ben Bishop's elbow remains a concern, and Anders Lindback will be the go-to guy between the pipes should Bishop be unable to go in Game 1.

Lightning's Lindback Blanks Capitals

News: Anders Lindback stopped all 18 shots he faced in a shootout, shutout win over the Capitals on Sunday.
Analysis: Anders Lindback has only let in two goals in the three games he has played since Ben Bishop's injury, which is encouraging as the Lightning head into the playoffs not knowing when Bishop will return.

Lightning Roll With Lindback On Sunday

News: Anders Lindback will start Sunday's game against the Caps, Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: The Lightning will roll with Anders Lindback on Sunday in a game that still carries playoff seeding implications for the team.

Bolts' Lindback: 34 Saves In Win

News: Anders Lindback made 34 saves in a 4-2 win over the Flyers on Thursday night.
Analysis: He looked solid between the pipes, and that's good for the Bolts. They don't really know how long Ben Bishop will be out, so it's Anders Lindback's cage for the rest of the season -- and likely the start of the playoffs.

Bolts' Lindback To Man Net Thursday

News: Anders Lindback is scheduled to start Thursday against the Flyers, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: With Ben Bishop scheduled to miss the rest of the regular season, Anders Lindback will be No. 1 on the Tampa Bay depth chart for the next three games. Look for him to make at least two starts for the Bolts, with his workload for the postseason hinging on how Bishop recovers from his upper-body injury over the next few days.

Bolts' Lindback Delivers Shutout Relief

News: Anders Lindback entered just 5:43 into Tuesday's game against Toronto following an injury to Ben Bishop, and he stopped all 25 shots he faced in a 3-0 victory.
Analysis: It doesn't technically count as a shutout, but it's still an excellent outing for Anders Lindback, offering a little optimism that he might be able to hold down the fort if Bishop's injury proves serious. Of course, his season numbers certainly don't make the glass look half full.

Bolts' Lindback Loses Again; Winless In Last Four

News: Anders Lindback stopped 25-of-29 shots fired his way Saturday, but ended up as the OT loser as the Lightning were edged 4-3 by the Penguins.
Analysis: Anders Lindback ended up on the wrong side of the battle of the backups against Pittsburgh, as the Pens' Jeff Zatkoff walked away with the win in a 21-save performance. The former Predator is now 5-12-2 on the year with a miserable .878 save percentage and 3.26 GAA - leaving him near the bottom of the barrel in terms of fantasy backups. Luckily for the Lightning, Ben Bishop has emerged as a bona fide stud between the pipes, so they'll continue to ride him hard in pursuit of their second postseason birth in the last seven years.

Bolts Start Lindback On Saturday

News: Anders Lindback will start in net for the Lightning when they face the Penguins on Saturday, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback has started just one game since the Olympic break and gave up three goals on just 21 shots, so he needs a big game here to prove his worth. He is currently 5-12-1 with an awful 3.22 GAA and .879 save percentage.

Bolts' Lindback: 18 Saves In Loss

News: Anders Lindback made 18 saves in a 3-1 loss to Buffalo on Thursday night.
Analysis: His starts come few and far between -- Ben Bishop is the top dog in Tampa. Anders Lindback is a handcuff (at best).

Lightning's Lindback Returns From Injury

News: Anders Lindback will make his return from an ankle injury to start Thursday against Buffalo, Sabres reporter Paul Hamilton reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback has been shelved since suffering an ankle injury on Jan. 30, but recently spent two games in Syracuse to work on his conditioning. Starting Thursday, Lindback is likely to be eased back into action by the Lightning.

Bolts Activate Lindback

News: Anders Lindback (ankle) was activated from injured reserve Monday, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback completed a two-game conditioning stint with AHL Syracuse and after checking out fine, he was deemed ready to resume backing up Ben Bishop. Kristers Gudlevskis was returned to Syracuse in a corresponding move.

Bolts' Lindback Sent Out On Rehab Assignment

News: Anders Lindback (ankle) was sent out to AHL Syracuse on Wednesday for a rehab assignment, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: With Ben Bishop likely to receive the first few starting nods for the Lightning coming out of the Olympic break, the organization decided it would be best for Anders Lindback to test out his ankle in Syracuse rather than siting on the bench with the parent club. Coach Jon Cooper still appears committed to Lindback as his top backup even in light of the Olympic star turn of young Latvian goalie Kristers Gudlevskis, so expect Lindback to reclaim his roster spot once he's deemed healthy.

Bolts' Lindback Healthy

News: Anders Lindback (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Anders Lindback appears to still be on track to suit up Thursday against the Predators, although it's unlikely that he'll get the start over Ben Bishop.

Bolts' Lindback (Ankle) Eying Feb 27 Return

News: Anders Lindback (ankle) expects to be ready for Tampa's game Feb. 27 at Nashville, reports the Tampa Bay Times.
Analysis: He's been on the ice at practice, but we don't think he's quite 100 percent just yet. The team may bring up Olympic hotshot Kristers Gudlevskis as insurance for that first game. Regardless, Anders Lindback is a marginal play at this point. Ben Bishop dominates the Tampa net and Gudlevskis is clearly the next one. Lindback needs a(nother) fresh start.

Bolts' Lindback On Ice For Wednesday's Practice

News: Anders Lindback (ankle) was on the ice for Wednesday's practice, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Though Anders Lindback's ankle injury wasn't a welcome development for the Bolts, it couldn't have come at a better time with the lengthy Olympic break. The team hasn't declared he'll be ready to play when they resume play next week, but if he can practice over the next few days without any setbacks, it would seem to be a likely outcome.

Bolts' Lindback: Ankle Injury May Be Serious

News: Anders Lindback's ankle injury may be serious, according to Eric Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune.
Analysis: Anders Lindback said he "felt a pop in his left ankle" when he was run over Thursday by Cory Conacher of the Sens, but somehow gutted it out for a period and a half because Ben Bishop had already left the game with an injury. Lindback missed a lot of time last season with a similar issue in his right ankle and never really recovered his game that season after he did return.

Lightning's Lindback Out Until After Olympic Break

News: Anders Lindback (lower body) will likely be out until after the Olympic break, Arpon Basu of LHN.com reports.
Analysis: Both of Tampa's goalkeepers went down with injury Thursday, though Ben Bishop's head injury is evidently less severe than Anders Lindback's, which is of the lower-body variety. Bishop practiced in full Friday morning and is expected to miss one game at the most, but with Lindback out until late February, the team will be forced to add a backup.

Bolts' Lindback: 23 Saves In Relief

News: Anders Lindback entered Thursday's game at the 1:49 mark of the first period after starter Ben Bishop suffered a head injury after being accidentally kicked by a teammate.
Analysis: He allowed four goals on 27 shots in the loss. He stands to get all starts in the short-term while the Bolts determine the extent of Bishop's injury. Snap him up, but be wary -- the Bolts could go out a grab some short-term help if Bishop is out long.

Bolts' Lindback: 25 Saves In Loss

News: Anders Lindback made 25 saves in a 3-2 loss to the Blue Jackets on Monday night.
Analysis: The Bolts were up 2-1 heading into the third period, but the Jackets turned up the heat in the third and they scored two power-play goals. Anders Lindback now goes back to his regular spot at the end of the bench -- Ben Bishop was activated for Monday's game and is expected to be between the pipes Tuesday.

Bolts To Stick With Lindback On Monday

News: Anders Lindback will make his fifth consecutive start for the Lightning on Monday against the Blue Jackets, Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Although Ben Bishop was on the ice for Monday's morning skate and could be activated from injured reserve before game time, he would only be available in a backup capacity. His absence gives Anders Lindback one last gasp of playing time, but he should settle into full-time backup duty before the week is out, barring a setback in Bishop's recovery.
