    Default Starting Lindback?

    I'm in a H2H league where I'm ahead 5-3 this week with wins shutouts being tied entering Sunday.

    I'm wondering if I should start Lindback. I have the lead in GAA (3.21 to 4.39)and Sv% (.871 to .818).

    Do I risk starting Lindback to get me a win or do I sit him down and take the 2-0-2 record in goalie categories just in case he has a horrendous start against the Rangers on the road?

    I'm leaning towards starting him but I don't play a lot of H2H so I thought I'd ask.

    Obviously, this is moot if Garon starts.

    Thanks a lot!

    Do it.

    Lindback has been playing well plus you've got a nice lead in the %s. Besides, Does he have any Gs going? If so, then you definitely start Lindback. Personally, I prefer to play aggressively.

    IF you have time, go back to this week's games for yourself and calculate the Saves and Shots Against. Now figure out how many conscutive goals (just add goals) it would take to ruin your Save %.

    Do osmething similar with minutes and GAA. I would say as long as you can take having 4 goals scored upon, you have to play Lindback.

    No, he has Elliott (reason for his bad stats) and Luongo. Was relieved to see Schneider in net last night!

    Considering I might lose some cats as I don't have as many skaters going on Sunday, I also think I have to play agressively here and hope for Lindback to get to win.

    I love the way Lindback is playing for TB.. I'm just not sure about today's game in NY..

    The Lightning had a very bizarre day yesterday and they do run the risk of coming out flat today.. This is the Rangers 5th day at home in a row, so they may be well rested and ready to go. The Lightning have been on the road for 6 days now and get to go home right after today's game.. So they could already be thinking about that trip home a little too much..

    I would proceed with caution.. Just my opinion.. But if you like to gamble start him and hope he can get you a win.. To be honest I have never sat a goalie in head to head, I like to pad those stats!!

    Start him for sure. He's solid and his save% this game would need to be in the .750 range for you to lose the SV% category. He would also have to give up at least 5 GAA...

    I think you're safe to play him and hope for the W.
