Lightning goalie Anders Lindback to play in Finland during lockout

Lindback to Finland

Lightning goalie Anders Lindback will play for Ilves Tampere in Finland during the lockout, agent Michael Deutsch said Saturday. Lindback, whom Deutsch said is "chomping at the bit" to play with Tampa Bay, played just 38 games the past two seasons as backup to Nashville's Pekka Rinne. Lindback, acquired last summer, is the third Lightning player to head for Europe, after Victor Hedman (KHL's Astana Barys) and Adam Hall (Germany's Ravensburg).
