Minor injury hampers Lightning goalie Anders Lindback

Lightning goaltender Anders Lindback, playing for the Finnish team Ilves Tampere during the NHL lockout, is expected to miss 10 days because of a cut to a knee sustained during Tuesday's practice.

Lindback was hit by a puck and did not realize the seriousness of the injury until he undressed after the workout, agent Michael Deutsch said.

"He said, 'I took my gear off and I couldn't believe there was a cut there,' " Deutsch said.

Deutsch said Lindback required "a few" stitches and "there is no structural damage."

The Lightning last summer signed Lindback, 24, to a two-year, $3.6 million contract with hopes he will be a long-term solution in net. He is just 3-6-4 in 13 games with Ilves Tampere but has a 2.33 goals-against average and a .933 save percentage.

TYRELL ALSO HURTING: Dana Tyrell, playing in Slovakia for Banska Bystrica, has missed one game with a sore groin. The right wing is getting his first game action since a January knee injury that required surgery

    SOUTHPORT, England — Someday, perhaps soon, there will be a plaque at Royal Birkdale for Jordan Spieth, much like the one off the 16th hole that celebrates Arnold Palmer and the 6-iron he slashed out of the rough in 1961 to win the British Open and usher in a new era of golf.

    Matt Kuchar plays out of the bunker on the 18th hole and finishes with bogey for 1-under 69. He had a one-shot lead after 13 holes.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Well, that was lovely.

    Brad Boxberger suffers his second loss in the three-game series, this time by allowing back-to-back homers in the eighth inning when called on to protect a 5-3 lead. “Just bad pitches,” he says.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Some of RHP Sergio Romo's numbers this season with the Dodgers were the worst of his career, yet the Rays feel he can be a good fit for their bullpen.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — There was no "here we go again" moment in the dugout as Rougned Odor's two-run homer in the eighth inning arced across Tropicana Field and toward the rightfield seats, even though when it landed, the score was tied and another late-inning Rays lead was blown.

    Rays third baseman Evan Longoria heads back to the dugout after fouling out in the ninth inning with the potential tying run on first.
