Monday’s game between the Coyotes and Sabres is a huge game in the standings as both teams are fighting for the Connor McDavid sweepstakes.

He has a 3-13-2 record this year with a 3.25 goals-against-average and .901 save percentage and has never faced the Coyotes in his career. Safe to say, leave him on the waiver wire and start a different goalie.

Believe it or not, Lindback has been pretty good for Buffalo over nine games thus far. He may be 1-5-2 in that time, but he's allowed just 23 goals against on 309 combined shots.

The 26-year-old has started seven of Buffalo's last eight games but he has collected just one win during that stretch.

Lindback has allowed just 16 goals on 243 shots through seven appearances with the Sabres since coming over at the trade deadline on March 2nd. And while he's acquired just one win in that time, you can certainly do worse than someone sporting five Quality Starts in six tries and riding a .934 save percentage. For the season, Lindback is 3-11-2 with a .904 save percentage and a 3.15 GAA in 17 appearances including his time with the Stars.
Mar 20 - 5:27 PM

Anders Lindback will get the start versus the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night.

Apparently, Coach Nolan "said it was long discussion but the big guy [Lindback] is simply too hot and they wanted to see [him go in back to back games]." And while Lindback is winless in five starts with Buffalo thus far, he also has four Quality Starts with just 14 goals against. Not too shabby, all things considered. For the season, Lindback is 2-11-2 with 47 goals against, but only two Really Bad Starts, in 12 starts and 16 games for Dallas and Buffalo.
Mar 17 - 5:48 PM

Goalie Anders Lindback stopped 35 shots in regulation and overtime Monday night but wound up with the loss in the Washington Capitals' 4-3 shootout win over the Sabres in Buffalo.

Lindback has been better than his 0-4-1 record in six games since being acquired by the Sabres but he's with a bad team and he's had a rough go. On the season, he is 2-11-2 with a goals-against average of 3.32 and a save percentage of .896. Stay away from Lindback in any type of fantasy play.

Anders Lindback will be in net Monday night against the Washington Capitals

Lindback has been better than his 0-3-1 recordin five games since being acquired by the Sabres as he holds a solid .925 save percentage. The fact the Sabres have the worst record in the NHL and the worst goal differential by a wide margin doesn’t help the Buffalo netminder’s situation. In six career games against the Capitals, Lindback has a 2-2-1 record with a 2.89 goals-against-average and .891 save percentage.
