Lightning backup goalie Anders Lindback named NHL's first star of the week

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Anders Lindback was named the NHL's first star of the week after taking over for injured starter Ben Bishop.

Lindback posted a 3-0-0 record with a 0.67 goals-against average, .975 save percentage and one shutout to help the Lightning clinch home-ice advantage in their first-round playoff series against the Montreal Canadiens.

Anaheim goaltender John Gibson was named the second star of the week after helping the Ducks clinch the top seed in the Western Conference. He closed out the season 3-0-0 with a 1.33 goals-against average, .954 save percentage and one shutout.

Columbus Blue Jackets centre Ryan Johansen is the third star of the week. He recorded two goals and four assists to help the Blue Jackets clinch their second playoff berth in franchise history.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
