It was another poor showing by Anders Lindback during Friday's 5-2 loss to Anaheim.
While it's worth noting that Lindback turned away 36 of 41 shots, including six of seven power plays, he also managed to look unable to follow the Ducks' play. Which is saying something. Lindback even turned the puck over to Mike Santorelli behind the net for an easy goal. It was a night to forget, as his record falls to 5-7-1 in 19 games this season. Feb 6 - 1:01 AM

Anders Lindback will be the Arizona Coyotes' starter on Friday.

Lindback hasn't started in a game since Jan. 16, though he has made two relief appearances since then. He has a 2.98 GAA and .896 save percentage in 18 contests in 2015-16.
Feb 5 - 6:04 PM

Anders Lindback stopped all 12 shots he faced in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Winnipeg.

Lindback entered the game at the start of the third period after Louis Domingue gave up five goals on 25 shots through two periods. Lindback didn't factor into the decision.
Jan 26 - 11:31 PM

Anders Lindback allowed two goals on 16 shots in Saturday's 2-0 loss to the New Jersey Devils.

This was Lindback's first appearance of the new year. He has a 5-6-1 record with a 3.04 goals-against-average and a .892 save percentage this season. Louis Domingue has looked a lot better than Lindback this season.
Jan 16 - 5:23 PM

Anders Lindback will face Chicago on Tuesday night.

Through eight starts and 15 games this season, Lindback has posted a 5-5-1 record with 36 goals against and a .900 save percentage. Or perhaps one of the most valuable backup goalies in any reverse league.

Anders Lindback allowed only one goal on 39 shots in a 2-1 overtime win over the Avalanche.

Lindback has really struggled to replace Mike Smith but has responded well in his first game since the Christmas break. This strong game might earn him more starts while Smith is out injured.

Confirming an earlier note, Anders Lindback will indeed face Colorado on Sunday night.

Lindback has not had a good season through seven starts and 13 games thus far. He's 4-5-1 with 35 goals against and an appalling .891 save percentage, which doesn't inspire any confidence.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 04:23:00 PM

Anders Lindback will probably get the call versus Colorado on Sunday.

Coach Dave Tippett said there's a "good chance" that Lindback starts. Louis Domingue will be in the crease against Los Angeles on Saturday.

Anders Lindback was healthy enough to back up Louis Domingue Saturday.

The goaltender had been ill the last two days but it was determined that he could play if he be. He was not needed as Domingue shut out the New York Islanders. This may not bode well for Lindback as Domingue could run with the job with Mike Smith out for another seven-nine weeks. Lindback is 4-5-1 this season with a 3.14 GAA and a .891 save percentage, not exactly stats to write home about.

Anders Lindback is dealing with an illness.

That puts Lindback's availability for Saturday's game in question. The Coyotes are already missing Mike Smith due to a core muscle injury.
Fri, Dec 18, 2015 03:48:00 PM

Anders Lindback was replaced by Louis Domingue after allowed four goals on 10 shots through the first half of Thursday's 7-5 loss to Columbus.

This marks the third time in four games where at least four pucks have beaten Lindback, which does not bode well for his future playing time. He didn't take Thursday's loss but he's not allowed 35 goals in 13 games, and sports an abysmal .891 save percentage.
Fri, Dec 18, 2015 12:36:00 AM

Anders Lindback will play between the pipes on Thursday.

Lindback will get the bulk of the Coyotes' starts while Mike Smith is sidelined with a core muscle injury. Lindback has a 2.92 GAA and .900 save percentage in 12 contests in 2015-16.
Thu, Dec 17, 2015 03:01:00 PM

Anders Lindback is expected to see the bulk of the action with Mike Smith sidelined following surgery on a core muscle injury.

Smith is slated to be out for eight-to-10 weeks. GM Don Maloney said the team will keep an eye on other options, but Lindback should see plenty of games to prove himself.
Tue, Dec 15, 2015 03:10:00 PM

Anders Lindback gave up five goals on 33 shots in the Coyotes’ 5-4 overtime loss to the Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Lindback gave up two in the first, and one in each of the next three frames. With Mike Smith on IR, the Coyotes will turn to Lindback for a bigger workload. He has a 2.92 GAA and .900 SV%. Don't expect too much from him moving forward.
Sat, Dec 12, 2015 11:56:00 PM

Anders Lindback stopped 27 of 28 shots en route to a 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild.

Lindback put in a great effort against the Wild, allowing just one goal six minutes into the second period. The 27-year-old is 4-5-0 this season with a 2.70 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage. Lindback seems to be having an up-and-down season, as is evidenced by his lackluster statistics. That being said, he is 2-1 in his last three starts, but there are most certainly better options in goal.
