Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, and the team has recalled goaltender Kristers Gudlevskis from the Florida Everblades of the ECHL.

Bishop started Thursday against the Florida Panthers and improved to 3-0-0 with a 1.93 goals-against average and .928 save percentage. He played the entire game in a 7-2 win.

Gudlevskis, 21, was a fifth-round pick (No. 124) by the Lightning in the 2013 NHL Draft. He was attending training camp for the Everblades after playing last season in Latvia's top junior league for HC Riga. Gudlevskis recorded a 2.09 GAA and .927 save percentage in 56 games.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
