Adam Rotter: He really hasn't looked out of place anywhere in the lineup. Lindberg has been solid and certainly had no trouble with his new linemates after one game. Will he hold down this spot in the top-six until Derek Stepan returns, we will have to see if his level of play dips, but Lindberg has certainly earned this chance to play with the Rangers big guys.
