Lindblom scored a goal on his only shot Tuesday in a 6-4 loss to the Devils.
Lindblom got the Flyers on the board 5:29 into the second period, staying with a loose puck in front and jamming it past MacKenzie Blackwood to cut New Jersey's lead to 3-1. It was the first of three straight goals for the Flyers, who battled back twice to tie the game in the final stanza. Lindblom has picked up two goals in his last three games and now has 13 points on the year.
Lindblom scored a goal on two shots and added three hits in Monday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Islanders.
Lindblom tapped in a perfect tape-to-tape feed by Claude Giroux on the doorstep, breaking a scoreless tie 12:03 into the second period.

Lindblom lit the lamp in each of Philadelphia's first two games of the year back in mid-January but had gone cold ever since. He finally broke through Thursday, banging home a rebound 2:26 into the second period to end his 21-game goal drought. He wasn't done, hammering a one-timer from a sharp angle with 2:22 left in regulation to snap a 3-3 tie. Lindblom fired 17 goals in his first full NHL campaign in 2018-19, then he scored 11 in only 30 games last year, but he has not been able to come near those levels of productivity so far this season.
Lindblom was removed from the league's COVID-19 protocols and practiced Friday, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
This development paves the way for Lindblom to make his return to the lineup Saturday against the Sabres. He last dressed Feb. 7 and has racked up two goals and two assists through 13 games.
The Flyers placed Lindblom (COVID-19 protocols) on non-roster injured reserve Thursday, per CapFriendly.
Lindblom has resided in the protocol since Friday, as he's one of six Flyers players in the protocol. The Swede has been decent prior to his addition, producing four points in 13 games. Lindblom will need to be added back onto the roster before he's eligible to play in game action again.
Lindblom was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Friday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Lindblom is one of six Flyers players in the league's COVID-19 protocol. The Flyers aren't scheduled to play again until Thursday's matchup against the Rangers, but that outing remains uncertain. Lindblom produced four points over 13 games prior to his addition to the COVID-19 list.

Lindblom was back in action for the first time since Dec. 7, making his return from a Ewing's sarcoma diagnosis in December. He was immediately placed on the Flyers' power-play unit and played three-and-a-half minutes with the man advantage. Lindblom's stat line Thursday was rather irrelevant; the fact that he was even back in the lineup undoubtedly provided the Flyers with an emotional lift. The 24-year-old had 11 goals in 30 regular-season games prior to falling ill and adds another offensive weapon to the Flyers lineup heading into Game 7 on Saturday.
Lindblow (illness) is on the ice for warmups and will play in Thursday's Game 6 against the Islanders.
This is monumental news for the Swede, who was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in December, and will make his first return to the lineup since Dec. 7. The 24-year-old winger may be a bit rusty in his return to the ice, and he's expected to handle a bottom-six role in his return to the lineup.
According to coach Alain Vigneault, Lindblom (illness) will participate in warmups ahead of Tuesday's Game 5, but he's likely still a few days away from returning to game action.
The Flyers are facing elimination Tuesday, but if they're able to pull off a win, it's possible Lindblom will be ready to return before Philadelphia's second-round series with the Islanders comes to an end. The 24-year-old winger hasn't played since being diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in December.
Lindblom (illness) took the ice for warmups Sunday but will not suit up for Game 4 against the Islanders, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Lindblom (illness) is expected to take warmups Sunday, although it's unclear if he'll play in Game 4 versus the Islanders, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.
Lindblom was pictured preparing for the game, and his jersey was hung up in his locker as if he would at least take warmups. This is encouraging news for the forward that rejoined the team on the ice Aug. 18 for the first time since being diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in December. Even if Lindblom doesn't play Sunday, it's reasonable to believe he'll be back in the lineup soon.
Lindblom has completed the NHL's mandatory self-quarantine and rejoined the team, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Lindblom didn't provide many details about his timetable to return after he was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in December, but the Swedish forward expressed how much it meant to him to be with his teammates after recovering from the illness. He'll likely ease back into workouts and on-ice training, but it'll likely be awhile before he suits up for a game again.
Lindblom (illness) has entered the bubble in Toronto and is currently going through the NHL's mandatory self-quarantine, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Lindblom hasn't practiced with the Flyers since he was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in December, so he'll undoubtedly need some time to get back up to speed following his self-quarantine, but the fact that he may be available at all during these playoffs is miraculous in and of itself. The 23-year-old winger picked up 11 goals and 18 points through the first 30 games of the regular season before being diagnosed with his illness.
Lindblom (illness) was included on the team's 31-man playoff roster Sunday, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.

The Swede had skated in a top-six role for the club through the first 30 games of 2019-20, picking up 11 goals and 18 assists. It's unclear whether he'll be ready to play in game action when the NHL's season resumes Aug. 1.
Lindblom (illness) signed a three-year, $9 million contract extension with the Flyers on Wednesday.
Lindblom was having a breakout season of sorts before being diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in December and subsequently missing the remainder of the campaign, picking up 11 goals and 18 points while skating in a top-six role through the first 30 games of 2019-10. The 23-year-old winger likely won't take part in this year's expanded playoffs, but he's already been skating on his own, and he's expected to be 100 percent healthy when next season's training camp gets underway, whenever that may be. He'll be a sneaky good pick in the later rounds of next year's fantasy drafts as an under-the-radar player with 30-goal and 50-point upside.
Lindblom (illness) won't be available if and when the NHL's proposed 24-team playoff gets underway, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Lindblom was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in December and has been undergoing treatment in the Philadelphia area ever since. While the 23-year-old winger took a huge step forward in his recovery by resuming skating Tuesday, it's safe to assume he's still a long way off from being cleared for game action. While the Flyers are chasing the Stanley Cup, Lindblom will continue to work toward a potential return in 2020-21.
Flyers general manager Chuck Fletcher said Monday that Lindblom is "doing well" as he continues to recover from a rare bone cancer, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
After being diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in December, the 23-year-old continues to go through treatment in the Philadelphia area and has been in touch with the organization regarding his recovery. Even with the NHL season having been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic, the Flyers aren't counting on Lindblom playing again in 2019-20 and remain focused on his long-term health more than anything. The young winger put up 11 goals and seven assists in 30 games before he was moved to long-term injured reserve.

Lindblom (upper body) won't play Saturday against Minnesota, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The Flyers have yet to release a projected timetable for Lindblom's recovery, but he'll need to return to practice before he'll be considered an option to rejoin the lineup, so he can be considered out indefinitely until that occurs. David Kase will continue to round out Philadelphia's depth up front until Lindblom's given the green light.
Lindblom will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Avalanche due to an upper-body injury, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Lindblom's absence will leave a significant hole up front for a Flyers squad that had been clicking offensively recently, tallying four or more goals in four of their last five games. The expected length of his absence has yet to be revealed, so it's best to consider the third-year winger questionable for Saturday's contest versus the Wild until more information surfaces. David Kase will replace him Wednesday.
