TAMPA -- Despite producing a 37-save shutout against the New York Rangers on Monday, Ben Bishop will take a seat on the bench and Anders Lindback will start in net for the Tampa Bay Lightning when they meet the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday at Tampa Bay Times Forum.
"Ben has been exceptional for us," Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. "At this rate, if you do the math, Bishop will play more games potentially this year than he has played in his NHL career total. Part of it is just managing his minutes.
"On the other hand, Lindback is extremely capable and he needs games. This is just part of the plan."
