Anders Lindback was the first goaltender off the ice Thursday morning.

He's probable to start against Winnipeg as a result. Lindback hasn't won a start this season, but he has won two games in relief. He stopped 34 of the 36 shots he faced in Tuesday's 5-4 victory over Ottawa. Kari Lehtonen has been struggling of late, so Lindback is being given a chance.
Jan 15 - 2:24 PM

Anders Lindback came on in relief of an ineffective Kari Lehtonen and backstopped the Stars to a 5-4 win over Ottawa Tuesday night.

After Lehtonen allowed two goals on five shots in the game's first 10 minutes, Lindback stepped in and blocked 34 of 36 shots the rest of the way to earn his second win of the year. His record improves to 2-6-0 with the victory and although he's not a reliable fantasy asset, it's nice to see him win a game.

Anders Lindback was beaten for four goals on 20 shots Tuesday night as the Stars dropped a 4-2 decision to the Blue Jackets.

Considering the degree to which he has struggled this season, the Stars have to be considering alternatives for their backup goaltending role. Lindback has appeared in seven games thus far, starting five of them, and has posted a 1-6-0 record with a ghastly 4.26 GAA and an unsightly .860 save percentage.

Anders Lindback will be the Dallas Stars' starting goaltender on Tuesday against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Lindback hasn't started a game since Nov. 29 and that alone sums up just how little fantasy value he's had in 2014-15. With a 4.29 GAA and .864 save percentage in six games, this is fresh opportunity for him to turn a corner, but even if he takes advantage of it, he won't be much of a threat to Kari Lehtonen.
Jan 6 - 6:36 PM

Anders Lindback stopped 9 of 10 shots in Dallas' 6-5 shootout win over Edmonton.

Lindback entered the game after starter Kari Lehtonen got yanked for allowing four goals on 19 shots. The Stars were down 4-2 when Lindback entered the game, but the goaltending switch gave them a spark. Lindback improves to 1-5-0 on the season with a 4.29 goals-against-average and a .864 save percentage.

Anders Lindback is expected to start on Wednesday or Friday.

Lindback was sent to the minors to find his game after his disastrous start to the 2014-15 campaign. He had a 4.64 GAA and .861 save percentage in five NHL contests, but he followed that up with a 1.59 GAA and .946 save percentage in five AHL games.

The Dallas Stars have recalled Anders Lindback from the AHL.

The 26-year-old has struggled mightily at the NHL level this season. He has a 0-5-0 record with a 4.64 goals-against-average and a .861 save percentage. He will serve as Kari Lehtonen's backup.

Anders Lindback has been assigned to the minors.

He cleared waivers on Thursday and was sent down. Lindback struggled mightily with the Stars while serving as Kari Lehtonen's backup. He posted a 0-5-0 record to go with an .861 save percentage and a 4.63 GAA.

The Dallas Stars have placed Anders Lindback on waivers.

Lindback has a 4.63 GAA and .861 save percentage in five games this season. Given his rough tenure with the Tampa Bay Lightning that preceded the 2014-15 campaign, we would be surprised if any team claims what's left of his one-year, $925,000 contract.

Anders Lindback was called upon to make 47 saves and he made 42 of them in the Stars’ 5-2 loss to Colorado on Saturday night.

If the Stars had a more capable backup, he’d be up in the NHL right now. Lindback is winless on the year, and it’s pretty much all his doing. He has a 4.63 goals-against average and .861 save percentage.

Anders Lindback will make the start for the Stars against the Avalanche on Saturday night.

It is possible that Anders Lindback could get the start Saturday night against the Avalanche.

Kari Lehtonen was in net for a 5-4 overtime loss to Minnesota Friday night and Dallas coach Lindy Ruff may turn to Lindback to give Lehtonen a breather.
Sat, Nov 29, 2014 01:06:00 PM

Anders Lindback was blasted for four goals on 28 shots in the Stars’ 5-3 loss to the Sharks on Saturday night.

Lindback gave up three goals in the third period, as the Stars dropped their seventh straight game. It goes to show that even the most exciting offense can’t make up for shoddy defensive play. Lindback is winless in three starts this season, and he has unsightly rates: 4.41 goals-against average and .852 save percentage.

It could be Anders Lindback in goal Saturday night against the San Jose Sharks.

Dallas coach Lindy Ruff has not said anything about Saturday night's starting goalie but Anders Lindback was the first one off the ice in Saturday morning's skate and that usually means something.
