It makes sense to give Lindberg the chance because he gives the team another center in case we get any injuries as a result of a cheap shot that no on-ice official sees.

Unlike Miller, I guess Fast or Lindberg won't be out of flow with the game,huh?

If Oscar is gonna be playing he'll center the 4th line and Dom will move up.

Maybe Lindberg would be like Kreider who came to the Playoffs right from college & scored 5 goals!

I'd like to see Lindberg make his debut if Stepan can't play in Game 5.

Kristo is nowhere near NHL ready, especially defensively and away from the puck. He would be a liability in these type of high intensity playoff games. Lindberg is a very responsible player and is good on faceoffs.
