Lightning goalie Bishop to make preseason debut

Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop will play in his first game since late in the 2013-14 regular season when the Lightning host the Dallas Stars on Friday.

The Lightning were swept by the Montreal Canadiens in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs and Bishop had surgery in late April to repair a torn ligament in his wrist, an injury sustained earlier in the season.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.

— Flames forward Mikael Backlund on scoring the overtime winner against the Ducks in Gm. 3
