Nuts & Bolts

Lightning Nuts and Bolts: Anders Lindback's handstands

5 questions G Anders Lindback

When a goalie does well, they say he stands on his head. Can you do that?


Actually on your head?

More on my hands.

When did you learn that?

In school at wresting practice we used to walk on our hands.


It's like training in hockey, just for your core (muscles) and to get stronger.

Is that something you break out at parties?

Not really.

Fish story

There's nothing better, D Keith Aulie said, than finding a place of solitude to fish. Aulie and some buddies did just that over the summer for five days at Lloyd Lake in northern Saskatchewan.

"It's way up," Aulie said. "I can't even explain to you how far north it is. It's way up where there is not many people and it's just you and the wilderness. I love that."

An avid fisherman, Aulie said walleye, lake trout and northern pike were most abundant, and he caught a couple of pike that neared 20 pounds. But the solitude is really what draws him.

"Just being out there with nature and being away from civilization, cellphones and TVs. I just love that feeling being away from everything," he said.

Home team

Former Lightning W Jussi Jokinen, now with the Hurricanes, said playing for his hometown team, Karpat, in Finland during the lockout, was crushing, especially because he owns 1 percent of the team.

"It made the pressure to do good even more than here," Jokinen said. "It's a lot of attention. Everybody is looking at you, but it was fun."


LW Cory Conacher on Jan. 19 against the Capitals became the sixth Lightning player to score in his NHL debut:

Player, Opponent, Date

Alex Selivanov, Penguins, Jan. 20, 1995

Paul Mara, Panthers, April 17, 1999

Ryan Craig, Red Wings, Dec. 17, 2005

Mike Angelidis, Blue Jackets, Jan. 24, 2012

Cory Conacher, Capitals, Jan. 19, 2013

Quote to note

"He's doing it all right now. He's dedicated to the winning things, not the flashy things. He's leading as a captain. He definitely is."

— Coach Guy Boucher, on C Vinny Lecavalier
