In five games with Texas, Lindback is 3-2 with a 1.59 GAA and .946 save percentage. Those are the best numbers the Stars have gotten out of a goaltender all year. Jussi Rynnas got into two games with Dallas, one as a starter and one in relief. He allowed seven goals in that limited time, possessing a 4.57 GAA and .841 save percentage.
It appears that Dallas got exactly what they wanted for their backup goalie Lindback in the assignment. He picked up a heavy week of work, playing in five straight games to tune up his game. Now as they head out on the road, they can feel more confident in Lindback as a starter on the occasional night.
Lindback will join Dallas in advance of their western Canada swing. Rynnas will begin practice with Texas when they resume team activities on Tuesday before Friday's visit to Utica.
