From Elias: Former Nashville goaltender Anders Lindback, facing his old team for the first time, made 28 saves to lead the Lightning to a 4-2 victory against the Predators. It was the first time that an ex-Nashville netminder defeated the Predators since Nov. 27, 2009, when the Blues' Chris Mason beat his former team in the Music City. Former Predators goaltenders were 0-9-0 against Nashville between the wins by Mason and Lindback.

I like how you keep throwing in the defenseman. Don't Stop! Maybe the hockey gods will listen.

What's not to like?
I especially liked in the 3rd when he had the puck at red line and their defense softly skated to their bench and he rushed up ice with st louis for a 2-on-1 scoring chance. Letangish... was sweet to see.

I am more thinking out loud than anything. Clearly you dont go changing anything thats not broken right now. but a 1.63 goals for.... not many goalies are going to win that many games.

Our goalie position in our organization right now is looking better than it ever has. If need be, with a package with a forward; im saying we can get a good defenseman for a playoff push. Mainly, I don't think lindback's stock will stop rising any time soon. lets sit on this and see what happens.

Right now the team just finished game 35, so the goal needs to be to continue to nail these targets for points for the next 25 games and then hope Stammer comes back at somewhere approaching full strength, thereby boosting the offense by almost 1 goal a game and taking pressure off the D and G's.

That's like getting a 50-goal scorer at the deadline for free, which is a sweet little circumstance for the team. At that point, Yzerman really needs to get at least 1 more defenseman for the stretch run, too.
I know there is a lot of hope in Canada he's going to be back for the Olympics. No chance of that/could that be a place to knock the rust off if ready then?

Not entirely, because he needs to get a feel for working with this particular set of teammates again and there will be a ripple effect throughout the lineup because everyone's roles will be adjusted slightly. That'll take at least a game or two to shake out (Cooper's teams are, admittedly, extremely good at making those adjustments quickly).
