Lightning's Lindback NHL's first star for week

Lindback is NHL's first star

TAMPA — Lightning goalie Anders Lindback was named the NHL's first star of the week on Monday. Lindback, who stepped in when starter Ben Bishop injured his elbow April 8, went 3-0-0 with a .067 goals against average and .975 save percentage. That included Sunday's 1-0 shootout victory over the Capitals to help Tampa Bay clinch home-ice advantage for the first round of the playoffs. Ducks goalie John Gibson and Blue Jackets center Ryan Johansen were the other two stars.
