Since being benched for most of Game 2 in Montreal, Oscar Lindberg has 3 goals, a plus 3 rating, 5 shots on goal and an average of 10:43.
In Game Two, Lindberg had two goals, 3 shots on goal, 1 shot attempt blocked, 2 hits, 1 giveaway, 1 takeaway and was 4 and 4 on faceoffs in 10:56.
Lindberg has skated the past two games with Tanner Glass and JT Miller and said that his line has done a good job of getting pucks off the forecheck and bearing down on their chances. (Rangers Game Notes)
Lindberg is an RFA at the end of the season and currently has a cap hit of $650,000.
Adam Rotter: Lindberg is playing limited but effective minutes for the Rangers. He skates well on the forecheck and has shown an ability to finish offensively when given the chance. Nearly every mention of Lindberg brings up the, likely, scenario that he ends up in Vegas in the expansion draft or as part of another move the Rangers might make with Vegas. He's proving to be a valuable NHLer and at 25 he is probably someone the Rangers would prefer to keep longer term than just the rest of this season. For right now though he is still with the Rangers and playing a pretty important depth role as they try and make their run in the playoffs.
