Lindgren allowed four goals on 28 shots in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Blackhawks.
Lindgren simply couldn't match the performance of Corey Crawford in the other crease. The Minnesota native has now allowed 10 goals on 93 shots in three starts, all losses. Lindgren will return to the backup role Thursday as Carey Price is set to start in Philadelphia.
Lindgren will get the starting nod at home versus Chicago on Wednesday.
Lindgren will make his third appearance of the season, having posted a 0-2-0 record and 3.08 GAA in his prior two contets. The 25-year-old could see a few extra starts heading down the stretch, especially if Montreal finds itself on the outside looking in for a playoff spot. With a back-to-back on the schedule, starter Carey Price is set to be between the pipes versus the Flyers on Thursday.
Lindgren allowed four goals on 30 shots in a 4-3 loss to the Red Wings on Tuesday.
Lindgren was solid despite the four goals allowed and deserved a better fate Tuesday night. Two unanswered goals by the hosts gave them the lead for good, causing Montreal to drop a seventh straight game. Lindgren is now winless in two starts at the NHL level this season. Even Carey Price is hard to trust in Montreal's net at the moment, so it's best to also avoid Lindgren until the team's form improves.
Lindgren will guard the road net in Tuesday's matchup versus the Red Wings.
Lindgren has only made one NHL start this season, and he was excellent, steering away 33 of 35 shots. The 26-year-old gets the nod again on the second half of back-to-back contests, and he draws a favorable matchup. The Red Wings rank last in the league with just 2.14 goals per game.
Lindgren made 33 saves Tuesday in a 3-1 loss to Carolina.
The 26-year-old was making his first NHL appearance of the season after being recalled from AHL Laval on Dec. 14. Lindgren posted an .893 save percentage in the minors this season and doesn't figure to see many starting assignments behind workhorse Carey Price.
