Lindholm picked up the game-winning goal in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Penguins. After being a healthy scratch for the last four-straight games, Lindholm was able to pot his third goal of the season. He was only placed in the lineup when David Krejci (undisclosed) became a late scratch and only saw 8:07 of ice time, so if Krejci is okay to play Sunday, expect Lindholm to be the odd-man-out once again.
Lindholm picked up an assist in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Predators. The helper was Lindholm's third point of the season, as all but two Bruins forwards picked up a point in the contest. The 28-year-old tallied 13 points in 65 games last season in his NHL debut, but has been in and out of the Bruins' bottom six this year.
Lindholm was not in the lineup for Monday's 5-2 loss to the Senators. With the return of Patrice Bergeron from a lower-body injury, Lindholm took a spot in the press box with David Backes. In 20 games this season the 27-year-old Swede has one point, 16 shots and 12 hits.
Lindholm (laceration) will be back in the lineup against Montreal on Tuesday. Lindholm slots back into the lineup after just one game on the shelf. While the center projects into a fourth-line role due to the absence of Patrice Bergeron (lower body) and Brett Ritchie (infection), the club could shake things up with additional call-ups. In 13 appearances this season, the Swede recorded one assist and14 shots while averaging a mere 11:06 of ice time.
Lindholm (laceration) is ruled out for Saturday's game against the Wild, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports. Lindholm required 18 stitches after suffering a cut during Thursday's win over the Sabres, and he won't be able to suit up. Despite the injury, the notion that he had a shot to play bodes well for his chances of playing Tuesday against Montreal, although his injury will need to heal up enough by then.
